Adding attachments

Attachments can be added in 2 different boxes

Password protected files must not be used as the portal will not be able to display the image/file for the triager. This will delay the referral.

Box 1 (Left) is for radiographs only. Please save these as jpegs wherever possible (TIFF and BMP files are large and are likely to require resizing). You will be required to enter the date the radiograph was taken (dd/mm/yyyy).

Box 2 (Right) is for all other documents. Please save any scanned documents as jpegs (again to avoid delays due to file size). If you are unsure how to convert image files please follow the instructions here. For pdf files, please ensure that the file extension is pdf as opposed to PDF, this can be done be renaming the file and retyping the file extension to lower case.

Once the files are in the boxes select the appropriate submit option.

Submit and submit radiographs by post does NOT send the referral to triage but places it in a holding list as we await your X-rays through the post. If using this option please state that you have posted the referrals to the referral centre. You may be asked to use this option for other referrals by a referral administrator.

These rads should be posted to:

Dental Referral Management Centre 
6 The Offices 
Stannian Fold 
Pool Lane 
WA13 9AB

* If you are sending radiographs to us in the post please ensure they are accompanied by the URN, the date the radiograph was taken and your practice details.

Submit Referral sends your referral directly to triage.

Once you use one of the submit buttons the system will allocate a URN – Please make a note of this so you can track the patients referral.

Once you have clicked a submit button the referral becomes locked and cannot be edited from your dashboard. If you have made a mistake and need to amend the information, you need to contact the Referral Management Centre (with the URN) to request for it to be rejected back to you. The Referral Centre cannot edit the forms for you as they are locked, medico-legal documents.

If you have any concerns, questions about file types, or issues with uploading please contact the referral centre for further assistance.
