CHOOSE AND BOOK
In line with government developments we have now adopted the national Choose and Book system. If your doctor feels it is necessary for you to be referred on to see another doctor or consultant you will now be given the choice of which hospital you go to.
Before leaving the surgery you will be given information of how to make your own appointment at the hospital of your choice at the time and date of your choice.
WHAT IS CHOOSE AND BOOK
Choose and Book is a national electronic referral service which gives patients a choice of place, date and time for their first outpatient appointment in a hospital or clinic.
When you and your GP agree that you need an appointment, you can choose to go to any hospital in England funded by the NHS.
The service provides greater convenience and certainty and, because the most of the correspondence takes place via computers, there is less chance that information will get lost in the post.
