You may also choose your clinical team led by a consultant or named healthcare professional.

Guidance for onward referrals


To further support delivery of the NHS Standard Contract 2017-19 measures, the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, in collaboration with partners including NHS England, has published guidelines on the best practice on onward referrals. This short clinical guidance document outlines clear principles for how to avoid unnecessary doubling up of referrals and helping patients move more easily through the care system.

You will find other information relating to this on the NHS website including easy read leaflets and leaflets in languages other than English.
