Patient Transport may be available for patients with medical need, as defined by the Department of Health. Please contact the Transport Desk on 08432 241888, between 07:00 and 21:00, Monday to Sunday, to discuss your needs and eligibility.

In most cases you will be seen by a Consultant (senior doctor) or a member of their team. As we are a teaching hospital, medical students may sit in during your consultation with the doctor. Please let the nurse or doctor know, if you prefer this not to happen. This will not affect your care or treatment in any way.
Whilst we do all we can to keep to appointment times, we hope you will understand that these cannot be guaranteed. We can’t always predict how long your appointment will take and delays can sometimes occur. Please allow plenty of time for your appointment and if necessary make suitable arrangements at home before you attend your appointment.
If you do not attend without letting us know, or change or cancel more than once, we may not be able to offer you a further appointment date. It is important that you are aware that under the NHS Constitution patients have the right to be assessed and treatment started within 18 weeks of their GP referral. If you do not attend as outlined previously, you may lose this right. Please contact the Trust on 01233 651882, should you wish to discuss your entitlement to treatment within 18 weeks,
