Directly Bookable Service for Neurophysiology
For patients requiring Nerve Conduction Studies (in the investigation of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome only).
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 Dermatology to remain as existing process (indirectly bookable service).
