If the Doctor feels that your symptoms require further investigation, he/she may refer you to see a hospital consultant.
Under the ‘ Choose and Book’ scheme, your referral is made electronically at the time of your consultation with your GP.
The benefits are:
- You will be able to choose from a number of hospitals
- You will be able to select the date and time of you hospital appointment
- Once referred, there is a relatively simple process to confirm your booking.
- Your Doctor/Reception staff will be happy to explain this to you.
