The Department of Health mandated the use of a minimum data set for inter-provider transfers from 1 January 2008.
The pathway data contained within this data is essential in order for receiving organisations to accurately monitor and report patient waiting times.
Referrals from other hospitals to Evelina London and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust must include a completed inter-provider minimum data set (MDS) or ensure that one is sent within 48 hours of referring a patient.

All inter-provider transfer minimum data sets must be sent to the referral management service at the address below:
18 week inter-provider team
Mary Sheridan House
St Thomas’ Street
or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
or by fax to: 020 7188 8740
If an MDS is not received within 48 hours of a referral letter, we will contact your trust to request a fully completed MDS.
