Outpatients

 

UHMBT deliver a wide range of Outpatient services across all 3 of our hospital sites and our 2 community health centres. We see half a million patients each year within our Outpatient departments.

What we do

If you've been referred to hospital but don't need to stay overnight, it means you're being treated as an outpatient or a day case.

You have the right to choose which hospital to go to for your outpatient appointment and which consultant-led team will be in charge of your treatment.

We aim to offer choice of appointments with flexibility of the hospital site, date and time of appointment, where appropriate. We deliver this through various booking practices such as Choose and Book and telephone appointments.

Once your appointment is confirmed with the hospital, you will receive an admission letter from the hospital that includes everything you need to know about your appointment. 

If you would like a copy of the letter that will be sent to your GP, please let the Outpatients clinic doctor or nurse know and they will arrange this for you.

Please be aware that these letters may contain medical terminology. If you require support in understanding the content, please contact your GP or health professional involved in your care.
