Electronic referrals

If you have been seen by us and a referral has been made, it could be we are using the NHS e-Referral Service, and rather than waiting for a letter in the post, you need to contact the hospital directly to arrange it.

You should have received/collected a document with

  • A booking reference number
  • A password

Booking the appointment online is easy, safe and secure.


X-ray department

Also, if we have referred you for an x-ray and you need to know when the radiology department at the different hospitals are open, see the x-ray timetable
