Referrals

Paper Switch Off for GP Outpatient Referrals

We have agreed our Trust plans for Paper Switch Off. Please visit the urgent GP information section  for further information.

NHS e-Referral Service

GPs referring patients to our hospitals must use the NHS e-Referral Service (eRS). From 3rd September 2018 we will not accept referrals sent by other means, and they will be returned.

Urgent cancer referrals

All cancer two week wait services are available on eRS and should be sent this way.

Written and exception referrals

Some specialist or urgent services may be exempt from Paper Switch Off. Please check our website on a regular basis for details. Guidance on how to refer to these services will also appear here. 

Dental referrals

Find out how to refer to The Royal London Dental Hospital here. 

Service information for clinicians

Each of our services has a dedicated webpage for clinicians, some with detailed referral and guidance information. You can view all of our clinical services here.
