eReferrals

NHS eReferral Service

We make referrals using 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. You will receive a document from the surgery after your referral explaining what you need to do next. Please read this carefully as this document includes the password required to use the eReferral system.

Most of our patients choose to be referred to Ipswich Hospital but please be aware that you can request other hospitals if you would prefer to be seen elsewhere.

Information about referrals to Ipswich Hospital outpatient clinics

It is difficult for us to be precise about expected waiting times as different specialist clinics have different arrangements, and this can also vary due to unforeseen circumstances.

The clinician who refers you will tell you if the referral is either:

 

Waiting time

Non-urgent

12-18 weeks (approximate; some departments are longer, up to 24 weeks)

Urgent

6-8 weeks (approximate)

Two Week Wait

(for suspected cancer)

Expect phone contact from the hospital within two weeks

 

If you need to make enquiries about your wait for an appointment then please phone
