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 wfccg.thccg.newccg.e-RSqueries@nhs.net.
