BHRUT - Reminder to GPs re attaching clinical information on e-RS


Please be reminded that it is good practice to attach clinical information at the time of referral, on e-Referral Service and when referring to the hospital. BHRUT have seen a rise in referrals without attachments and clinical information and this leads to GP practices being chased for the information or delays in the process.  

All practices should be checking their worklists daily and this is where referrals can be managed and those without attachments can be viewed and actioned.  

There are lots of help booklets and guidelines on NHS Digital website and e-Referral Home page which can be easily accessed.  

If there are any issues or queries, please contact janet.bartlett@nhs.net
