English term or phrase: referral
as in sending a patient to see a specialist, or some similar situation. I also need "self-referral"

I don't want to use "recomendación" as the text below makes a specific distinction between referral and recommendation.



Supervisor/Manager Referral. A supervisor/manager referral to the XXX service is made when an employee’s work performance has shown a pattern of decline.

Supervisor/Manager Recommendation. As a supervisor or manager, an employee may ask for your help in solving a problem. You can play a key role in helping the employee get immediate assistance for personal concerns by suggesting that she or he use the XXX.

derivación


Explanation:
Me parece que en este contexto lo mejor es "derivación". Podría decirse "autoderivación" para "self-referral".

Explanation:
Self referral- someterse voluntariamente

Supervisor/Manager Referral- Sugerencia del Supervisor/Administrador. Un Supervisor/Administrador somete un informe al servicio de XXX cuando se ha observado que el desempeño de labor de un empleado ha declinado o disminuido.

Something like that.

Hope this helps you.

Explanation:
I forgot about "self-referral". The obvious translation would be "autoremisión" but I must admit that it sounds a little bit hard in my ears. Besides, if you are "self-referred", ¿doesn't it mean that you go straight to see the specialist? So it'd make sense to translate it as "visita directa".
