As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all hospitals are experiencing longer waiting times for patients. We continue to work tirelessly in accordance with national guidance to ensure that all patients are reviewed as efficiently as possible.  

Understandably this may cause some anxiety. The information provided below details the process by which we are proactively managing the waiting lists to ensure that all patients receive care and clinical review in a timely and safe manner. 

Working in line with national guidance

Our Consultants across all specialities are continually reviewing patient records to ensure that all patients are reviewed as efficiently as possible.
All our patients have been provided with a letter to inform them of when they may expect to be seen and to seek their views. In accordance with national guidance, all patients have been informed as to whether they:

  • Require treatment in four weeks
  • Require treatment in three months 
  • Require treatment in over three months.

We appreciate your ongoing patience at this time and advise that if you have any concerns with regard to your current symptoms to speak to your GP in the first instance. Where necessary, the GP will liaise with your Consultant should an earlier review be required.
