If you and the doctor agree that it is necessary for you to be seen by a specialist at a hospital or clinic you can be referred by an E-Referral.

E-Referrals is a service implemented across Sunderland that allows you a choice of place, date and time for your first outpatient appointment in a hospital or clinic. You can choose your hospital or clinic and your appointment time when you are in the surgery with a member of the practice team, or at home by telephone or over the internet at a time more convenient to you.
