About Our Service

Welcome to the Outpatient Services. We offer access to specialised consultants upon referral from your GP. We host over 25 specialities of both medical and surgical orientation in a number of clinic areas accross the site.

The service is available to anyone who has been referred for specialised care from their GP.  Your GP will refer you to a consultant either by using the NHS Choose and Book system where as the patient you can choose which hospital you wish to attend or directly to a specific hospital.  Either way you will receive a letter through the post or digitally with your unique reference number and a centralised telephone number to call to make your appointment.  Please note this appointment is provisional and subject to approval by the consultant, but all changes will be communicated with you via letter or telephone. 

Main Out Patient areas have a shop on site.  All areas of Out Patients have toilet facilities (with disabled access) and provide water chilled or at room temperature.  

All Out Patient waiting areas and clinics are staffed by qualified nurses and healthcare professionals ensuring you receive the highest quality care throughout your time with us.  There are two main Outpatient Departments (OPDA & OPDB) and four smaller areas (Bobby Moore Unit, Chest Clinic, Lilac Suite and Outpatients C Department).  

Patients who make second appointment cancellations are referred back to their GP.

If you have a disability or special requirement that may need adjustment to our services then please contact either the department sisters or manager by either telephone or email as stated below.
