Electronic Single Referral Process

Issue 16 - Sep 2017

Wirral Community NHS Foundation Trust introduced the Electronic Single Referral Process for Wirral GPs back in February this year. It is the primary referral route for services provided by the trust.

To date we have received 3500 referrals to our services using the single electronic referral form. This is fantastic and thank you to all those GP practices who have so readily engaged with the new process.

However, there are still a small number of practices who have not yet made use of the form and we would urge all GPs and Practice Manager to revisit the supporting documentation. This will be emailed to you and is available on the trust website   It includes a full list of participating services (now including Tissue Viability) and a list of those services out of scope. We will also provide:

  • An updated EMIS template (now including Tissue Viability Service)
  • Details on how to archive previous EMIS document templates
  • Dictionary of Wirral CT services referral criteria

The single electronic EMIS form streamlines the referral process into our services. It ensures the information we receive is directly relevant to that service and saves valuable time for both GPs and Health Professionals.

If you have any queries about the process or implementation of the electronic referral form in your practice, please contact

If you have a query about a specific referral you have made to one of our services, please contact the service direct.
