Your appointment

Preparing for your appointment

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, we ask that you attend your appointment alone where possible. More information about this is available on our Covid-19 and outpatient appointments page. If you require a carer, please contact the department ahead of your appointment to discuss your requirements. 

In line with our Trust’s policy, a chaperone is available for all intimate examinations. If someone has accompanied you to your appointment, the clinician will still request that a member of staff acts as chaperone for an intimate examination.

As it is likely you will have a clinical examination, we recommend wearing clothing that is comfortable and easy to remove. Some of our clinics have additional requirements which will be explained on your appointment letter.

Our clinical team are offering telephone and video appointments in addition to face-to-face appointments, so please check your clinic letter carefully to see which type of appointment you have. 

Telephone clinic appointments are usually booked within a set time frame (9am-12 midday or 1.30pm-4.30pm) which will be detailed on your clinic letter. It is likely the caller ID will show as a private or withheld number. 

Links and instructions to join a video consultation can be found on our video appointments page.

General information about ourpatient appointments can be found on our outpatient appointments page


During your appointment

The duration of your face-to-face appointment will depend upon your individual needs but on average we allocate 30 minutes for each appointment. As our hospitals are teaching hospitals, medical students may be present during your appointment. However, if you do not wish to have them in the room during your appointment, please let the nurse or doctor know and students can be asked to step outside.


After your appointment

You and your GP will each receive a copy of the clinic letter which summarises your consultation. Follow-up appointments are not given at the time of your appointment but will be arranged as required.
