Telford Referral and Quality Services (TRAQS)

The Telford Referral and Quality Services (TRAQS) manage GP referrals for patients registered with a Telford and Wrekin GP practice.

Once it has been decided that a referral is necessary, they are created electronically by the GP practice and sent directly to TRAQS.

The referral will be reviewed by one of our fully trained staff to ensure all the relevant information has been received and will be processed by the appropriate provider.

TRAQS enables patients to be seen in the right place, first time. This may be in a GP practice setting, in a community health clinic, or at a hospital - whichever is seen as the most appropriate and meets the needs of the patient.

The CCG recognises that sometimes referrals are made outside the area that is not subject to patient choice. To maximise convenience for patients and investment in local services, the CCG actively promotes local referrals wherever a clinically equivalent service exists.

TRAQS opening times: 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays)
