Outpatients is a part of the patient pathway where you come to the hospital for an appointment with the consultant’s team or other departments.
Please bring your medication or prescription sheet with you. If you are under the care of a doctor please bring a copy of the clinic letter detailing your care / treatment/ investigation.
We will log your time of arrival and tell you which member of the consultant’s team you will see. To keep our records up to date we will ask you general questions (GP’s address, contact details, ethnicity) and if you may need an interpreter. We will ask you to take a seat at the main waiting area or the consultant waiting area.
In your first clinic appointment we discuss the options for treatment, the likely surgeries and the possible outcomes.
