How to get to the hospital

Coming for an appointment?

When you come for an outpatients appointment, please report to the main Outpatients Reception desk 10 minutes before your appointment (unless you are asked to attend earlier). Please bring your appointment card.

We always try our best to ensure you are seen by a doctor on time. But there are times when your doctor may have to spend longer with a patient than originally planned, so your appointment may be delayed. We display information about delays on the notice board, but we do appreciate your patience.

You can find out more about coming to hospital.

The clinical team in the outpatient department is led by Sister Dawn Goodfellow. The team consists of:
