About the Referral Tree

How does the referral tree work?

The referral tree is launched from the F12 protocol list to make it easily accessible from anywhere within EMIS Web.
All referral forms will be fully optimised by Primary Care IT. This is to ensure as much information is automatically merged into each document template.
Categories for the referral forms will be decided (an example of these are shown below)

Practices can suggest categories if they wish. If practices are in the same locality (PCN, CCG, etc), they will have the same categories and referral forms.

The user selects a category which then loads a list of all the forms available in the category. For example, the image below shows from in the Mental Health category:


A referral form can be selected and launched at the convenience of the user, who will be given the below options:














The referral will be coded in the patients' records for audit purposes.
