Service Guide

Service Guide (excel doc) - information on various clinics, services and providers and how to refer to these.  This guide gets regularly updated as information changes almost on daily basis.

Referral template

The Referral Service recommend the use of a standard ICB BNSSG Standard Referral Form Template (word version) which can be embedded into practice EMIS systems and will prepopulate with information that is helpful for the triage team and for providers. This information can help improve the patient pathway and is particularly helpful for surgical specialties to help avoid the risk of patients having their treatment cancelled or delayed.

Further advice on pre-operation criteria can be found on the Pre-operative Assessment page.

Please contact the referral service if you would like a EMIS downloadable version of the BNSSG Referral Template.
