GP Referral System GP Referral System

Working with Medefer Ltd to the tune of some 1,500 man hours, we have developed ground-breaking and user-friendly web-based software and interfaces which enables GPs to liaise directly with Consultants around the UK.

GPs send referrals using the Medefer online portal.  Consultants are able to securely connect to the portal at any time through any computer and review referrals pertaining to their specialty along with detailed patient medical records. The referrals can be responded to and sent back to the issuing GP and can now be taken further  to go so far as to organise any necessary treatment.

The system is an N3 hosted secure platform and is IG Toolkit compliant

The results of using the Medefer system and process are

  • Shorter time to diagnosis
  • Reduced referral rates
  • Significant cost savings


Commissioner Benefits

Medefer helps Clinical Commissioning Groups reduce referral rates and costs whilst improving patient healthcare outcomes at the same time. They do this by providing GPs with a guaranteed response from a Consultant within 48-hours of an electronic referral.

Medefer’s platform has built-in tools for automatic auditing of a wide range of KPIs that will help the CCGs in their commissioning decision making, with significant reduction in administrative time.

Built into the software is the ability to perform Quality Assurance checks on the GP referrals as well as the Consultant responses.

  • 48-hours response
  • Automatic transfer of medical history
  • Improved patient outcomes


GP Benefits

We have worked hard with Medefer to ensure that the platform is easy-to-use and is integrated with the main primary care electronic patient record systems. When using Medefer’s platform, there is no need for the GP to write or copy the patient’s medical history again, as this information is automatically transferred across during the referral process.

  • 96% of referrals dealt with within 48 hours
  • 56% of patients managed in the community
