When you contact the hospital, please quote your hospital number, which you will find on your appointment card.
When you arrive
Our reception staff will welcome you and complete the very few formalities required.
Patients are called according to appointment times given. Some patient consultations can take longer than others and this can affect the appointment system.
Delays may be caused because investigations have to be carried out after patients have been seen by medical staff. Occasionally, medical staff may be delayed in theatres or on the wards however, if this happens and you have to wait, our clinical staff will give you an explanation.
If the doctor asks you to book in for another appointment, please make sure you return to the reception desk where you will be given the date and time of your next appointment.
A shopping area in the Foyer includes a coffee shop.
These are available throughout the hospital. If you need a wheelchair, please speak to the reception staff when you arrive.
