Referrals from GPs to consultant-led clinics should be made through e-RS. Our services on e-RS are listed below. GP referrals made to consultant-led clinics run by these services by any method other than e-RS will be returned, with a request to make the referral via e-RS.
If there is no capacity for the required clinic on e-RS, use the ‘Defer to Provider’ option. Our Services A-Z gives details of any exceptions, such as diagnostic services, which are not available on e-RS.
Attach a referral letter or the relevant referral form, if one is available. Download forms from the referral forms page, or the relevant service page.
