GP referrals up 300,000 in the last year

1st December 2008

The Department of Health has said the amount of GP referrals has gone up by 12.6% since last year, with 295,100 referrals.

Other types of referral went up by 9.2% (124,100). However, the statistics for the last two quarters reveal that the amount of referrals has actually decreased. Only three strategic health authorities in England have increased for the second quarter, with the highest increase in the West Midlands.
