Information for Patients

Out-Patients Department (OPD) Attendance - Updated 4th January 2022

In the interest of everyone’s safety during the current COVID-19 situation and to prevent onward spread of the infection, please can we remind patients attending an appointment within the hospital or community settings, to attend alone or with one parent or carer where possible.

Please can we also remind patients and all parents or carers to wear a face mask during the appointment unless exempt, and remember good hand hygiene and social distancing measures can help to keep everyone safe.

Your Appointment

We are all busy people and sometimes, it is not always possible for you to get to an appointment we may have made with you. If you are unable to attend your appointment for any reason, please tell us as soon as possible so your appointment can be given to another patient. This improves our service for everyone.

If less than 24 hours prior to an appointment, please do not use this form, instead, call our dedicated appointment line: 0300 555 4567
