General information:

Department areas are extremely busy. We try our best to ensure all our clinics run as close to your appointment time as possible with every patient treated with respect & dignity as an individual during their consultation. However, consultation times may vary depending on individual patient needs.

Our priority is that all consultations are effective and informative. We endeavour to ensure you are kept up to date with any possible delays that may occur.

We would recommend all our patients complete a national friends and family questionnaire on leaving our department to enable us to constantly monitor and improve our services.
