GP Single Referral Process - full roll out

Issue 14 - Mar 2017

Following previous correspondence that has gone out to all GPs about the introduction of a single referral form within EMIS, we are delighted to roll out the electronic form to all GP Practices.


The new form streamlines all our referral forms and contains all the relevant information services need. This is a major change for practices and our services and we have engaged with a significant number of Wirral GPs and practice staff who have helped develop the form that can be sent by secure email.


The electronic single referral from was previously rolled out to approximately 14 GP practices back in late February/early March and feedback from practices and services was then analysed to see if any amendments were needed.


From Monday 27 March the electronic single referral form is available for ALL GP practices to use.
We have provided supporting documentation for GPs to use the new form. This includes:



Any issues with the new process or form can be feedback over the next two months until the end of May. This will allow us to review and ensure it is fit for purpose prior to this becoming business as from Thursday 8 June.

The development of this form is a great achievement both for the trust and our GP colleagues, resulting in ease of referrals to WCT services and reduced GP workload.
