Choose and Book
Choose and Book is a national electronic referral service which gives patients a choice of place, date and time for their first outpatient appointment in a hospital or clinic.
When you and your GP agree that you need to see a specialist, you will be able to choose from up to four hospitals or clinics. You will also be able to choose the date and time of your appointment.
The benefits of Choose and Book:
- You can choose from up to four hospitals
- You can also choose the date and time for your appointment subject to availability
- You experience greater convenience and certainty. With the old system, your hospital or clinic chose the date and time of your appointment. This may not have been convenient for you. With Choose and Book, the choice is yours.
- There is less chance that information will get lost in the post because more correspondence takes place through computers.
