If you cancel two consecutive appointments, or a number of intermittent appointments, or fail to attend an appointment, we will not be able to offer any further appointments.  

If you cannot make an appointment please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer your time to someone else. 

Waiting times

Our waiting times have increased due to unexpected staffing issues which has further increased due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. 

We are currently looking to book appointments for people who were referred to the service in December 2018. These individuals have had to wait an average of 35 months.

Individual waiting times are variable and unfortunately we cannot give specific times for individual waits.

Please keep us updated of any changes to your contact details to ensure we can offer you an appointment when one is available for you.

We would like to sincerely apologise for this situation and for any inconvenience or difficulty this may cause you.

If you are waiting for an appointment please take a look at this letter which outlines the support available while you are waiting.
