Referrals to Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons

As MTW is a tertiary centre, there is no need to refer patients to London-based hospitals in the first instance. They can be referred directly to MTW at the earliest opportunity, using the normal referral procedure. Urgent referral routes are available for conditions such as DDH, clubfoot, slipped epiphyses etc.

Please contact Mr Katchburian’s secretary on 01622 224208 or Ms Dartnell & Ayodele’s secretary Sharon Woodham 01622 222018 for details. The consultants are also happy to discuss problems directly by email. Please note Mr Katchburian also takes Adult Hand referrals.

e-Referral system update Monday 9 October 2017

Dear GP colleague,

Maidstone and Tunbridge NHS Trust successfully migrated to their new patient administration system (PAS) over the weekend.

The link from eRS to the new Allscripts PAS has been completed, however an error has been identified from the eRS end which is preventing referrals being made.

This has been logged as a priority 1 call with the eRS support team to resolve. As soon as we have an update from the eRS team a further notification will be provided.

Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust is treating this as a priority to resolve.

Kind Regards

Michael Beckett
Interim Director of Health Informatics
Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust
