Referral forms are an essential part of the process. We can accept your referral in three main ways – by post, by NHS NET email or by direct online referral. Please visit the sign up page to learn more about how to get signed up for this service. The referral forms on the website are frequently updated, so please check back regularly to make sure you have the latest versions.
The referral forms are generally on one of four formats; Word Form – a fully expandable form that you can simply complete in your word processor; Word Blank – ideal if you just want to print them out and fill them in by hand; Word R4 / SoE which enables you to place field codes from your practice software into the forms to complete them; and PDF – for filling in on your local computer. New forms are not provided in PDF format as Word provides the benefit of fully expandable field entry.
Please Note: If you are using the R4, Pearl, or SoE templates, please ensure that you copy the entire form into your software – Do not remove any information as the system needs all of the elements in order to work correctly. Please ensure that you use the correct template for the integration solution you are using. You can apply for an integration API key here.
