Waiting times

Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to work as quickly and as safely as possible to reduce our current waiting times.

Regrettably, the disruption from Covid-19 is likely to be felt for some time yet. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, waiting time improvements are now slowly starting to be felt across our services.

We appreciate however that experiencing a longer wait to be seen can be distressing. If this has happened to you or the person you care for, we really are very sorry.

Please be assured that we are doing everything possible to work through our lists to give you the help that you need.

To assist our clinical and administrative teams during this time, we ask that you do not contact them unless your enquiry is urgent. These teams will not be able to update you on where a patient currently sits on our waiting lists.

As soon as we have an appointment date and time, we will contact you without delay.

In the meantime, the list below shows an average of our current waiting times.

We really are very sorry that our patients are currently waiting longer than we would want. Thank you for your understanding.
