How to access this service
To access this service, your GP or medical practitioner will need to send a referral letter to the hospital.
If there is no waiting list you will be offered an appointment by the hospital.
If there is a waiting list, you will receive a referral acceptance letter and be advised on what to do next. When an appointment becomes available, you will be contacted by the hospital with an offer of an appointment. You will need to confirm your ability to attend, or contact the hospital to arrange a more suitable time. If you do not confirm your ability to attend, the hospital will not be able to hold the appointment for you and will offer it to another patient. While waiting for an appointment, we ask that you contact the hospital to update your personal details if they have changed since your referral was accepted.
