logoGPs revert to paper as new e-referrals system is taken offline completely

GPs are resorting to fax and post to refer patients today after the new e-referrals system malfunctioned on June 16 and was taken offline completely.

The system will remain offline until ‘technical difficulties’ with the server are resolved, Pulse has been told.

The system was launched on Monday of this week but was suffering a range of issues affecting practices’ ability to log on, with GPs telling Pulse they were forced to delay referrals as a result.

This followed months of delay to tackle bugs in the system that had been identified before the original launch date which was planned for October 2014.

A Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) spokesperson said: ‘We are experiencing some technical difficulties. We are working hard to resolve these issues as quickly as possible and to keep disruption to a minimum. We will continue to update users regularly and are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.’
