What happens when you are referred by your GP to see a specialist?

The NHS has prepared a leaflet which explains what is expected to happen when you are referred to a hospital or a specialist.

Patient information

This covers booking appointments with the hospital, results of tests or procedures, medicine prescribed by a specialist, fit notes, follow-up and questions about the care you received from them.

Please read this leaflet carefully as it will help you to answer your questions more quickly.
