Please let us know if your contact details change, so that we can get in touch if we need to. Full details of your appointment are in your appointment letter so please read it carefully.
You will be under the care of a consultant and their team of doctors. You may not see the consultant at every visit and may see one of the other members of the team.
We understand that you may need to bring children with you to your hospital appointment, but please note that we do not have child-minding facilities. For safety reasons, please take full responsibility of your children at all times.
When you attend your appointment you may need to be examined by a doctor as part of your assessment or treatment. Sometimes this examination is of an intimate nature dependent on your symptoms or condition. If an intimate examination is required we will always offer you a chaperone. If you would like more information on this, please discuss with the nurse when you attend for your appointment.
What should I do if I cannot keep my appointment?

Please note that if you fail to attend your appointment without letting us know or repeatedly cancel your appointment, we will refer your notes to your clinician for review and this may result in you being discharged from the hospital and referred back to your GP.
