Hospital Appointments


Booking Your Secondary Care Appointment

The e-RS Manage Your Referral (MYR) website is easy for patients to use. It allows you to book, check, change and cancel your appointments online without help from the practice. 

Most patients will be directed to a booking webpage which provides information about the referral process. From here you can access the MYR website from the 'Start now' button to manage your referral using your booking reference number and access code

You can book your own appointment at a convenient date and time and location, where there is a choice for you to do so.

This is a wonderful new initiative which means fewer patients contacting the practice to find out what is happening with their appointment. This keeps the busy phone lines free for patients that require on the day medical attention.

To further help patients manage their referrals digitally, integration between the NHS App and the MYR patient website took place in late October 2020.

This allows all patients who have fully registered with the NHS App to go straight into MYR from the NHS App to view or manage any e-RS referrals, triage requests or bookings, without needing the specific details for a referral (booking reference number and access code).

This is great news for patients and we encourage you to manage your referrals online.
