GPs can only refer via Choose and Book, CCG rules


As needing a referral myself quite recently for a steroid injection, I had to make an appointment to see my GP, for him to refer me to himself through 'choose and book'. What a waste of time and money. Once the appointment was arranged. 'Choose and book' still kept sending me letters to say I hadn't contacted them, more waste!!
