Understanding Our Appointments System

Our aim is to see you within a time frame that is suitable for your condition. We will always endeavour to offer you an appointment with the appropriate member of our Clinical Team. To ensure you get the best from our Clinical Team this may not always be with a clinician of your choice.

Please be aware that our Patient Services Team will ask you to disclose the reason for your appointment. This allows us to signpost you to the right clinician.
