Appointment Form

If you have been given an outpatient appointment at the hospitals and are unable to attend for whatever reason you can use the form below.

It is really important that you let us know of any changes as soon as possible. This means we can offer the original appointment to another patient.

Please complete the form below with your contact details and as much information as possible. You can find most of the information we need on your appointment letter.

If you have any problems using this form, please call the number on your appointment letter and we will do our best to help you. You will receive a response from us so you know it has been received and actioned.

If you wish to change the date and time of your appointment you, you can click the re-book option and state any dates that are not suitable for you, or you can contact us using the number on your appointment letter.

From Monday 15th June, and in line with recent recommendations from the World Health Organisation, the Trust will ask staff, visitors, out-patients and members of the public to wear masks or face coverings while on hospital premises.  This is because people infected with COVID-19 can have very mild or no respiratory symptoms and can transmit the virus to others without being aware of it.

We can all play a role in reducing the spread of coronavirus and keeping our hospitals safe. If you are coming to hospital as a visitor or for planned outpatient care, it is important that you wear a face covering at all times. This is for your safety and the safety of other patients and staff.

Outpatients, visitors and members of the public arriving at our hospitals will be asked to:

  • Sanitise their hands
  • Only enter the hospital if their visit is essential
  • Maintain social distancing
  • Wear a face covering or mask throughout their visit

Outpatients, visitors and members of the public should try to plan in advance and bring a face covering with them whenever possible, but masks can be provided for those arriving without.

Face coverings can be cloth and/or homemade, and advice on how to wear and make one can be found on the government website. Face coverings worn as part of religious beliefs or cultural practice are also acceptable, providing they are not loose and cover the mouth and nose.

Thank you for helping to protect yourself, your loved ones and our staff.
