Urology GP Advice and Guidance

 

The Urology Advice and Guidance service was set up in September 2016 as a pilot initiative with Bristol and S. Gloucestershire CCGs and is available to GPs in these areas, via the E-Referral system.  The service enables GPs to access specialist urological advice from a Consultant regarding the management of a patient, clarification regarding a patient’s test results or to seek advice on the appropriateness of a referral for their patient (whether to refer or what the most appropriate alternative care pathway might be).

The average turnaround time for a response is 3 working days and GPs are invited to respond again with further questions, if required.

 

GP Feedback

“Excellent service. A really useful tool for GPs, providing quick support and reassurance for patients. Should help to reduce out patient referrals”
