Choose & Book

When you and your GP agree you need a specialist appointment, Choose and Book allows you to select which hospital or clinic you go to for your first appointment, along with the date and time of the appointment. It also gives you the ability to:

Plan and manage around any existing appointments and commitments

Check the status of your referral

Change or cancel your appointments easily over the phone or internet

How does Choose and Book Work?

If you know where and when you would like to be seen, you may be able to book your appointment before you leave the surgery. If you want more time to consider your choice, you can take an Appointment Request letter away with you and book your appointment later. This letter lists your unique booking reference number, your NHS number and a list of hospital or clinic options for you to choose from. The surgery will also give you a password to use with your Appointment Request letter. Your appointment can then be booked via telephone or the internet.
