Are you waiting on an Out Patient Appointment?
Many patients will be waiting on delayed out patient appointments, diagnostic procedures and/or elective admissions. In order to help patients who are concerned that their condition or symptoms are deteriorating, the Royal Cornwall Hospital has set up a patient hotline.
The aim of this hotline is to:-
- avoid patients having to return to their GP to raise concerns about their condition or symptoms with a view to expediting care
- ensure there is a clear route in for enquiries where patients are concerned about their condition
- help keep patients safe whilst waiting for treatment as all enquiries and concerns are assessed by a clinician.
The hotline is: 0800 035 7777 or you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to find out what the current waiting times are for treatment, you may like to visit the RCHT website, and you can access that link here.
