Hospital Appointments – book, cancel or change

We are sorry that we cannot contact hospitals to chase appointments.

Due to increased waiting times for hospital appointments, GPs have seen a rise in patient requests to “expedite” their appointments. 

As a GP surgery, we are not notified of any waiting times for clinics or provided with hospital hotline numbers. We would have to call the same numbers that you would. If you are waiting for your first appointment and have not heard for a long time, please contact the out patients department in the first instance and then the consultant secretary.  If you have been unable to contact outpatients or the secretary please contacts PALS (Patient Advice and Liaison Service) for the hospital that you have been referred to. These contact details will be on their website.
