RD&E Advice & Guidance

NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group and Providers are looking at developing the most effective way of providing GPs with clinical advice for non-urgent cases.

Advice and Guidance - A two-way conversation on e-Referral (eRS) system directly between GP and Consultant. This allows the attachment of documents. If a subsequent referral is required, this is then requested by the GP through eRS/ DRSS. Please see here for instructions on how to use Advice & Guidance on NHS e-Referral.

The Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital provide Advice and Guidance using the e-Referral system for the below specialties.
