Referrals to GIDS, 2014-15 to 2018-19

All referrals, 2014-15 to 2018-19

These figures represent all referrals to GIDS, including those that were rejected due to age or other factors, from all countries that refer to the service. These figures were generated on 25 June 2019.

In 2017 we moved to a new electronic patient record system called Carenotes. As of this year, we will be using the reporting function from that system to produce the numbers for our referral figures. As a result of moving to this new reporting system, the numbers for those referred in previous years have changed slightly from those given out in previous years. However, the trends in referrals across time are unaffected by these adjustments.
