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.

In this section we provide a range of information that will help tell you what to expect when you come to hospital.

This includes coming for for an appointment (known as an outpatient), to stay overnight (inpatient) or for surgery (sometimes known as elective care) at our hospitals. We have also provided information for people visiting friends and relatives.

The guides help explain what it would be useful for you to bring with you, the staff who might be treating you and what will happen during your stay. Each patient and individual case is different but we aim to make your stay as comfortable and easy for you as possible. It is important to be prepared as possible for your hospital stay and we hope you find the information in these guides useful.
