How your referrals are processed
The ‘Care Gateway’ team manages GP referrals for patients registered with a GP practice in Manchester.
- Organise non-emergency patient transport for eligible patients in Manchester, Salford and Stockport
- Book community phlebotomy appointments for South Manchester patients (where their GP doesn’t have the capacity to do so)
