What happens when your referral reaches us?
What we need from you
In order to allow us to process your referrals in an efficient and timely manner, we need the following information:
- Up-to-date patient demographics (including a daytime contact number with area code)
- Primary reason for referral including clear referral instructions
- BMI/BP taken within the past 12 months (to enable us to offer full choice)
- Previous medical history and any recent investigations
We also require you to attach the referral letter and any attachments at the time of booking into Kernow RMS, as without this we cannot process the referral.
