You have been referred, what will happen next?
Your GP surgery will complete a referral and send it through to your local Referral Service.
Your GP surgery will provide information as to what steps, if any, you need to take to activate your referral.
Your local Referral Service will then contact you by email or post and provide you with information on how to book your appointment.
This should normally happen within two working weeks of being referred.
What do I do if I haven’t heard anything?
It may take up to two working weeks for the Referral Service to contact you so please do not be concerned if you haven’t heard anything during this time.
If you haven’t heard anything after two working weeks, or if you received a letter or email, you need to contact your local Referral Service.
Please email us if possible, but if you are unable to do this, you can leave us a voice message on 01793 987663 and someone will come back to you as soon as possible.
