Work has now started on a major project to ensure that all first outpatient referrals to a consultant at Derby Teaching Hospitals are paperless by 1 October next year. 

We already receive the majority of referrals from GPs via the NHS e-referral Service but we must ensure 100% compliance before that date. 

This is a national project and we are working with NHS England, NHS Digital and NHS Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group to support GPs and consultants within all specialities to achieve this.

This project is just at the beginning and further updates will be sent out as soon as they are available. In the meantime, please do what you can to improve utilisation of the e-referral system where you’re able.
