The NHS e-Referral Service (e-RS) combines electronic booking with a choice of place, date and time for first outpatient appointments. Patients can arrange their hospital appointment with their GP during consultation, or independently either online or by telephone.

The purpose of this guidance is to:

  • Provide summary information to support provider organisations in submitting their plans in Quarter 1 and making the necessary changes on the NHS e-Referral Service to deliver the Quarter 2 to Quarter 4 CQUIN requirements, appending or signposting to appropriate detailed guidance.
  • Support providers and commissioners in understanding the data available within e-RS to help with the monitoring of delivery.
