GP Advice & Guidance Handbook now available

Dear primary care colleagues,

To support you in accessing specialist advice via the e-Referral Service (e-RS), the GP Advice & Guidance (A&G) Handbook is now available.

The document covers the pathway for seeking advice (including process changes in place during the Covid-19 pandemic), advice on worklist management and details of Barts Health services currently offering A&G.  It also contains useful frequently asked questions and a reminder of the process for following up on any unanswered A&G requests.

In the event of any uncertainty about whether to request A&G or refer, or if you need any further guidance on the use of A&G services, please consult this document in the first instance.

If you have any further questions after reading the handbook, or suggestions for additional content, please contact us on

Kind regards,

WEL CCGs Planned Care Team
