The Choose and Book scheme allows you to choose your hospital or clinic and book an appointment with a specialist.
When we agree that you need to see a specialist, you will be able to choose from a selection of hospitals or clinics. You will also be able to choose the date and time of your appointment.
The benefits of Choose and Book are:
- You can choose from at least four hospitals/clinics.
- You can choose the date and time for your appointment.
- You experience greater convenience and certainty. (Under the old system, your hospital or clinic chose the date and time of your appointment. This may not have been convenient for you. With Choose and Book, the choice is yours.)
- There is less chance that information will get lost in the post because more correspondence takes place via computer systems.
Register As A Carer
It is important to let us know if you are a Carer for one of our patients.
Sometimes when people are looking after someone they can get tired or frustrated and would feel assured in knowing that there is someone outside the family who might understand and can help them. If we know that you are a main carer, we can offer you that help.
Not only can we take greater care of you, but we also need to know who is supporting our patients. The information you give us will be added to the notes of the person you are caring for, so we can contact you quickly in an emergency or if we have any other concerns. Also, if you have concerns we know we can talk to you, as the main carer, with their permission.
To notify us that you are supporting one of our patients, please speak to one of the receptionists.
