Expedite Referral Letters
Written Requests to Expedite Appointments
Patients are often requested by the Hospital to obtain a letter from the GP so their appointment can be expedited.
NB. waiting a longer time for an appointment does not deem your request urgent. According to figures from NHS England, a total of 7.42 million people were waiting to start treatment at the end of May 2023, the highest since records began in August 2007. As a result, we are unable to write letters to expedite your appointment.
If you are experiencing worsening of your symptoms, we advise you to contact your specialist directly so they can assess your condition and make the necessary arrangements. If you have difficulty in accessing your consultant, we advise you to contact PALS for assistance.
