Radiology Request Referral Forms

The NHS Vale of York CCG has worked with York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and 5 pilot practice sites to produce electronic referrals for Radiology. The use of electronic referrals is supported by NHS England, who have challenged the NHS to become paperless by 2018.
