Hospital Waiting Lists

We are aware that, for some specialities, the waiting time for your first appointment can be several weeks, if not months. Unfortunately as GPs we have no control over this and there is nothing we can do to get this brought forward. You can, if you wish, telephone the appointments section at the Hospital (the number should be on your appointment letter) and ask if they can put you on the cancellation list. Please be aware that this may result in our being offered an appointment at very short notice and therefore may not be suitable for you depending on your circumstances.

Obviously if you feel that your symptoms have changed or deteriorated significantly whilst waiting to see a specialist then you should contact your GP to discuss this.
