e-Referral Service - FHIR API

Create paperless referrals from primary to secondary care using the e-Referral Service (e-RS) FHIR API.

Overview

Use this API to create paperless referrals from primary to secondary care with the e-Referral Service (e-RS).

You can:

  • receive e-referrals from e-RS including the "Referrals for Review" worklist, the Clinical Referral Information (CRI) and any referral attachments - sometimes known as the "referral letter"
  • search for services relevant to the selected patient
  • create an e-referral with a shortlist of directly or indirectly bookable services
  • create an e-referral for a Referral Assessment Service (RAS)
  • upload attachments - sometimes known as the "referral letter"
  • generate a confirmation letter for the patient

The search limits its results to services which are appropriate for the patient and the referring organisation based on the commissioning rules that apply to the authenticated user and the patient.
