Please be aware that all patient referrals go to the NHS Referral Support Service (RSS). The Clinical Triage Team at the RSS will decide whether they agree with the GP's referral or not and they should contact the patient to let them know the date and time of the patients referral appointment. Occasionally this does not happen or the GP referral is rejected and the patient is not informed by RSS. In the first instance if your referral is taking a long time please contact the RSS team on 01372 232500 or email NWSreferrals@nhs.net
