We know that many of our patients are in a lot of pain, so the sooner they can be seen by our consultants the better. Because we deal exclusively with scheduled care, and no emergency cases, not only are our waiting times short, but our patients are unaffected by NHS cancellations of surgeries.
If you have had to wait more than 18 weeks for your treatment to start, you are entitled to switch hospitals. Find out how to switch waiting lists.
