Making an Acute Referral...

This electronic system should be used for all urgent referrals that are not immediately life-threatening. You will receive a response via the same software.


How to Make an Online Referral:

In order to make a referral you will need:

  • Your GMC Number
  • An NHS (i.e. Trust or e-mail account
  • A computer that is on an NHS network

If you do not have all of the above, please find someone in the department who does!

Make Your Referral:

  • Once you have activated your account, go to the site again and click the Referring Hospitals link to make a referral
  • Once a referral is made, the on-call neurosurgical registrar will receive a text message to inform them of this and they will review the referral and offer advice
