GPs can only refer via Choose and Book, CCG rules

Comment

With the spine going up and down, a poor directory of services not using the language of the local services, any thought of a GP using it in a 10 minute appointment is madness. We are supposed to discuss referrals with our colleagues before referring, this goes against this ethos and will cost the NHS dear. Pay for proper backroom support on a per item basis and this will fly, expect GPs to do it and it will fail.
