NHS e-Referral Service saves £10million in first year

NHS e-Referral Service saves £10million in first year The NHS e-Referral Service has saved the NHS £10million in its first year of operation, following redevelopment by NHS Digital.

The achievement was paralleled by 10 million referrals also being made by the electronic booking system in the same time period.

The millions of pounds in savings have mostly been achieved as a result of the service being built in-house by NHS Digital, in collaboration with software specialists BJSS. This has led to a 60% reduction in running costs compared to the Choose and Book system, which the NHS e-Referral Service replaced in June 2015.
