How long will my appointment take?
We advise patients to allow half a day for their hospital appointments. Sometimes a clinic or a particular practitioner can run behind schedule with good reason.
You may also need to have blood tests, X-Rays or another procedure, which will increase the length of time you are at the hospital.
If you are worried about the length of time you have been waiting, please mention this to a member of staff in clinic. You can also check our live waiting times.
What happens if we cancel your appointment?
We try to keep every appointment we make, but medical emergencies and unforeseen circumstances mean that we sometimes have to cancel appointments. If this happens, we are sorry for any inconvenience caused and will arrange a new date for you as soon as possible.
Follow up appointments
If you need to come back for follow up care, your future appointment will be made before you leave the department wherever possible.
