Outpatient and Clinic Queries

You can cancel or change your appointment by contacting one of our outpatient appointment teams. We have different teams booking appointments for each service so to ensure you reach the individual best placed to answer your query, please try to contact the correct team directly on one of the numbers listed below.

To help us assist with your query, please ensure you have the name, address, date of birth and if possible NHS or hospital number available of the patient you wish to enquire about.

If you need to cancel an appointment at short notice (including on the day of your appointment), please contact the relevant appointment team below who will inform the clinic you are not able to attend. Please do not ring the clinics directly as they can at times be very busy and therefore the staff are not always available to answer the phone.
