Barts Health NHS Trust is moving to a more resilient and secure platform for receiving cancer 2ww referrals, single point of referral (SPoR) requests and related information.
A number of secure nhs.net mailboxes have been established to replace the existing fax routes
With immediate effect, referrers are advised to begin using these mailboxes for all cancer 2ww referrals and single point of access requests.
Please note that communication must be sent from an nhs.net email account in order to meet Information Governance requirements concerning Patient Identifiable Data (PID).
Existing 2ww faxes will continue to be monitored until Friday 25 March 2016, after which they will no longer be monitored and eventually switched off. Therefore please ensure your colleagues and teams move over to the nhs.net mailboxes as soon as possible and certainly no later than Friday 25 March 2016.
e-Referrals (formerly Choose and Book) should also continue to be used for 2ww referrals.
