How to refer your patients to our services

All available outpatient clinics are listed on the NHS e-Referral system (eRS). To refer your patients to any of our services, please use the NHS e-Referral system (or Bexley Health Limited Referral Management System) where your patient will be offered the next available appointment within a day of your referral. 

In the case that the Trust cannot provide an immediate appointment, 'Defer to Provider' can be selected and the patient will be contacted within 48 hours for an appointment.


The DXS Dartford Gravesham and Swanley (DGS) CCG Professional Guidelines & Pathways and Medicines Best Traffic Light areas have the latest clinical guidance and referral pathways for the Trust. We work closely with DGS CCG to ensure these are routinely reviewed and updated where necessary.
