AWP has introduced an email referral form for all urgent (72 hour) and routine referrals (4 weeks) to PCLS/Triage. The form should be available as an EMIS template.
After 13 July 2018 faxes will no longer be accepted and referrers should be referring for 72 hour and 4 week responses via the email referral form.
In North Somerset & South Gloucestershire, GPs should phone through any 72 hour referrals on the following numbers:
North Somerset Tel: 01934 836406 South Glos: Tel: 0117 3787960
Out of office hours (8am - 5.30/6pm) calls will be diverted to the relevant on call team. A referral form may be required following the phone conversation.
Upon completion, the email referral should be emailed to the relevant locality PCLS/Triage Team for action:
North Somerset: email@example.com
