It is the Government’s priority in England to:
- Provide patients with an offer of choice when it has been decided they need a first consultant out patient appointment
- When it is decided with your GP to refer you to a specialist, speak with your doctor about what is best for you.
- Please ensure that you attend your Secondary Care appointments. If you fail to attend your appointment you will be removed from the waiting list and will need to attend the practice to request a new referral, this is both costly to the practice and it is not a good use of our GPs' time.
