Other Referrals

All other referrals are via the GP on a GOS 18. There is also no PEARS scheme running locally.

In cases where a patient needs to be seen urgently or soon, you should decide if referral via GP is the most appropriate course. Please see this article.

If you see a patient who has a GP from a Neighbouring CCG you may be able to join that scheme and refer using those protocol e.g. a patient with a Wolverhampton GP could be referred for Cataracts or have repeat pressures or even PEARS but you would need to join that scheme first.
