Referrals

When making a referral, the GP or Nurse will need to supply personal information such as your name, date of birth, NHS number, and contact information (address, telephone & mobile numbers) as well as relevant clinical information.

In accepting an offer of referral, you are agreeing to the GP sharing the required information

Referral Management

In July 2016, St. Helens Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) introduced a Referral Management system. This means that referrals to hospitals will be sent to a specialist service who will manage the referral:

  • ensuring that the Practice is referring to the most appropriate service, or advising if there is an alternate treatment which should be considered
  • ensuring that any appropriate tests or investigations have been carried out
  • checking that all relevant information is included in the referral letter
  • arranging / booking appointments

The CCG has produced a YouTube video and a patient leaflet to explain about the Referral Management system, and answer some questions you may have. To access these resources, please visit the CCGs Referral Management page
