A new way of making hospital appointments available is currently being used in this practice. It is called Choose and Book.
Whenever a doctor makes a referral to a hospital clinic a Choose and Book referral will be made at the time of the consultation. The doctor will give you a printout of the hospitals who will be able to see you about your condition and you can choose where you wish to go.
The printout will give you a number to find out more about the amenities of each hospital and another set of numbers for booking an appointment to suit you once you've decided where you would like to go.
In essence you are given a choice of hospitals who can accept your referral and then you book the appointment yourself.
You can find more information on the Choose and Book website.
