Inverclyde Pharmacy First Pilot : How do I refer a patient for an urgent appointment with their GP or out of hours?

·        In the unlikely event that an urgent referral is required, it is vital that there is telephone contact with the practice to alert them to the urgent referral and gain advice from them on the timescale involved.

·        The SBAR should be completed and emailed (marked high importance) and the patient directed to the practice. An example of the completed form is available.

·        Please ensure the patient understands the timescales as agreed with the practice.
