Primary care urgent referral form
The primary care urgent referral form should be completed by primary care colleagues across Cheshire West and Chester to refer patients from their practice into the specialist sexual health service.
Urgent referrals can be made for the patients below:
- Patients who have tested positive for Gonorrhoea/Syphilis or HIV
- Patients who require an IUD (copper coil) for emergency contraception
This form should be completed by a registered professional.
We aim to contact your patients within 48 hours of a referral (or the next working day if this is a bank holiday or weekend) appropriate to the reason for referral.
