The e-Referral Service which replaced Choose and Book is a national service that combines electronic booking and a choice of time, date and place for your first outpatient appointment. The e-Referral Service will enable patients to choose a convenient place, date and time for their initial hospital appointment
Patients will be able to either book their appointment electronically immediately with the GP or other practice staff, or they can call a telephone booking service or use the Internet at a later stage.
If your referral is appropriate for the e-referral service, you will be given a token by your GP with details of the number to ring to book your appointment.
