Faxed referral letters for emergency patients

Due to the phasing out of fax machines at the Trust, as from 18 April 2017, we will no longer be accepting faxed referral letters for emergency patients or Care of the elderly referrals to Medical Day Unit, Colchester General Hospital.

Any communication will need to be sent via email to:

chu-ftr.gpletters@nhs.net

Please note this does not replace the telephone referral, as this will still be required.

GPs should continue to send patients with a covering letter, but if this is not possible an email will be accepted. Please advise at the time of the telephone referral that a letter will be emailed.

It is not possible to use this email address for any other correspondence.

If you have any queries please contact:
Medical Day Unit on 01206 744200
