If a GP or another member of the healthcare team believes you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, they will offer you a choice of where you would like to be seen. Information leaflets are available at the surgery.
Choose & Book
Your appointment can be booked electronically. However, this can be a time-consuming process during a consultation. When your GP has discussed your options with you, he/she may either book an appointment via the computer system for you, or pass your details to a secretary who help you to ensure that a convenient appointment is booked promptly via NHS Direct.
