Every effort is made to see patients at their appointment time but unfortunately this is not always possible. Delays in clinic can occur but our staff should be able to tell you the reason. Everyone is seen in order of their appointment time and not in order of arrival.
If you need to have any diagnostic tests such as an x-ray then this may increase the length of time you are at the hospital.
If the decision is made that you will need an operation you may be asked to attend a pre-operative assessment directly after your appointment alternatively we will book an appointment for you with the pre-operative assessment clinic
