A&E Referral Source

A&E Referral Source

An NHS term of art for individuals, professionals, and bodies which are allowed to refer patients to A&E. The main source of such referrals is the patient himself; the remaining referrals arise from the patient's GP or representative, ambulance service, major accident/incident officer, or out of hours services.
