About NHS e-referrals

This NHS E-Referrals web site is run independently and is not part of the NHS. We are here to help any organisation or any person who wants to know more about the NHS electronic referral system (e-Referrals, previously known as Choose and Book/C&B).

Our expertise goes back to 2004 when the C&B system and Patient Choice was launched. We have a great depth of understanding over patient experience with the system and enabling patient choice. We also have up to date market analysis in the uptake and utilisation for all CCG areas and Providers which can help potential providers to understand how the market operates currently and the extent of any opportunity to grow your business.

We offer support for bidding for Any Qualified Provider (AQP) contracts and the requirements for setting up services on e-Referrals, gaining IGSoC status, N3 connectivity, NHS email and Smartcard access, all requirements for an AQP.

We are here to help you so please contact us if you need to know more.
