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 us within 2 weeks giving details of how to book your appointment and any passwords you may need.

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

NHS e Referral service

Help patients manage their referral online

GPs and practice staff can now email e-Referral Service (e-RS) booking information securely to patients who have an NHS login and patients can also manage their referral in the NHS App – removing the need to print and post booking instructions. 

You can find out more about this new functionality and how to use it and view this short video that explains the benefits for staff and patients.
