Routine Referrals

NHS e-Referral Tracking

If your doctor has referred you to a specialist for further care you will be asked to book your appointment using the ‘NHS e-Referral’ system.

You will receive a letter from the referral management centre within 2 weeks giving details of how to book your appointment.

To track your e-Referral you will need the following details to log into the e-Referral website:

  • Your date of birth
  • Reference number – this will be on the first page of your letter
  • Password – this will be on the second page of your letter

If you have not been contacted within 2 weeks, you can contact the referral management centre directly on 01772 660011.
