Requests to expedite hospital appointments

Requests to expedite hospital appointments

Due to increased waiting times for outpatient appointments, we have seen a rise in patient requests to “expedite” their appointments. Patients are often requested by the Hospital to obtain a letter from the GP so their appointment can be expedited.

Please note that waiting a longer time for an appointment does not deem your request urgent. According to figures from NHS England, a total of 5.8 million people were waiting to start treatment at the end of September 2021, the highest since records began in August 2007. As a result, we are unable to write letters to expedite your appointment for this reason.

We would advise all our patients awaiting hospital appointments to be patient and wait to be contacted.

We are not notified of any waiting times for clinics nor provided with hospital hotline numbers.  If your appointment has been delayed, please contact the hospital appointment line for any updates.

You can check hospital waiting times using the link below:
