If your GP decides that you need referring for either further assessment or treatment, a referral letter will be completed and sent electronically to the WUTH Booking Team (unless you choose a different hospital under the right to choose) You will be sent a text message or letter with your booking number, password and the contact number for the booking office once it has been processed. If you have not received this please contact us.
Your referral will be checked and either rejected with advice for the GP or you will be placed on the waiting list to see a specialist.
Please respond to all letters to arrange an appointment or your referral will be closed. If your referral has been closed you will need to contact your GP and ask them to start the referral process again.
If you have not heard and wish to chase the referral please contact the booking office on 0151 604 7501, you will need your booking reference number and password which should have been sent to you by text or letter. Please see the approximate current wait times for different specialities below.
