A NEW film is being shown in GP surgeries across County Durham to tell patients about the Choose and Book service. The three-minute film, made at locations in the area, shows how patients referred by their GP for specialist treatment can book an appointment on the spot at a hospital or clinic of their choice.

Using the Choose and Book service in surgeries throughout England, GPs can advise patients on the options available and then make an appointment for them at their chosen hospital at a convenient time and date.

Or the patient can make the appointment themselves later using the internet or by telephone.

Robert Peacock, Choose and Book Programme Lead for NHS County Durham, said: "It's quick and simple for patients to Choose and Book when referred for specialist treatment by their GP.

"This short film is a good way of getting the message across."
