Your child’s appointment letter will give you the time, date and location of the appointment. If, for any reason, you need to cancel or rearrange an appointment or an operation, please see the details below to find out how to contact the right team.

Outpatient appointments

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 are calling 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.

Rearranging your child’s operation

If your child is not able to attend for surgery or you wish to change it to a more convenient time, please tell us as soon as possible so we can give the appointment to another patient.

You can change or cancel the operation date by calling the service where you are being treated – you will find contact details on your appointment letter.

To help us deal with your request as quickly as possible, please ensure that you provide the following information:

  • Your child’s full name
  • Your child’s NHS number or date of birth
  • A contact telephone number or email address
  • The date the surgery is booked for

Cancellations by us

We try to keep every appointment we make, but medical emergencies and unforeseen circumstances mean that we sometimes have to cancel appointments. If this happens, we will arrange a new appointment for you as quickly as possible.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
