70% e-referrals across Wales

23rd January 2012

The NHS Wales Informatics Service has confirmed that almost 70% of GP practices in Wales are able to send electronic hospital referrals through the Welsh Clinical Communications Gateway.

Every health board in Wales is using the referral system and 300 GP practices are signed up to it. The NHS Wales Informatics Service reports it has worked with the Scottish Care Informatics team, local GPs and other bodies in order to customise the service to meet the requirements of NHS Wales. It added that the electronic referral system meant less chance of data being lost in the post.
