For GPs

Use NHS e-Referrals (e-RS) to make new referrals to consultant-led clinics. This includes urgent suspected cancer referrals. If there is no capacity available on e-RS, use the ‘Defer to Provider’ option.

See the services section for details of any exceptions to this, such as referrals to diagnostic services which are not available on e-RS.

Referrals made in other ways that should have been made on e-RS will be returned, with a request to make the referral on e-RS.

For other health professionals

See the services section, which lists the services we provide at Princess Royal University Hospital; Orpington Hospital; Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup; and Beckenham Beacon. It includes direct contact details and any specific referral information for each service.
