A typical referral process timeline is as follows.

  • 2 working days – acknowledgement receipt for fully completed referral papers sent.
  • 8 working days  – senior managers will consider the referral. There are two possible outcomes from this process.

If the referral information is sufficient to come to a decision this will be communicated to the referring body within 2 working days of the decision been made.

If further information is necessary this will be identified, requested and gathered within 2 weeks. Senior managers will then reconsider the application within the following 8 days and the decision communicated to the referrer within the following 2 days.
