Referring via e-Referral

Use e-Referral for the following.

  • Routine patients should always be referred via the e-Referral Service.
  • Urgent patients may either be referred through e-Referral or via the 2 Week Wait.

Directly Bookable Service for Clinical Haematology

The GP surgery will generate an appointment referral request with appropriate priority (urgent or routine) for the service on e-Referral and UBRN in the usual way.

To select a directly booked appointment, please see the guide at the link below, which shows how to use the system.

An electronic proforma or appropriate letter needs to be attached to the e-Referral system by the surgery within 48 hours for a routine or urgent appointment.

In the case that the Trust cannot provide an immediate appointment, 'Defer to Provider' can be selected and Trust processes will be in place to contact the patient within 48 hours for an urgent or routine appointment.

18WW clock will start on the date the GP or patient makes the appointment booking.

GPs should check their patients have appointments on their e-Referral worklist. This applies to all appointment requests made through e-Referral.

Please note exclusions:

  • 2WW Haematology to remain as existing process.

2 Week Wait patients

2 Week Wait patients should be faxed to the 2 Week Wait Bureau to ensure they are booked into the appropriate clinic and as soon as possible.

Only patients with suspected haematological malignancy should be referred via the 2 Week Wait. It is usually appropriate to refer patients with chronic lymphoproliferative disease (chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia etc.), myelodysplasia and myeloproliferative disease (polycythaemia vera, essential thrombocythaemia etc.) via Choose & Book.

Referring direct

Not applicable. If you are unsure if a consultation is essential the department is always happy to provide advice by phone (to the on-call Haematology Registrar on bleep 1836 via Switchboard), letter or email (to one of the consultants).
