If you are waiting for a hospital appointment, unfortunately your GP practice cannot speed this up. If your condition is worsening, please discuss this with your specialist so they can decide if you need to be seen sooner.
You can also contact the hospital’s Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS).
While You Wait
While You Wait is a resource designed to support people with their physical and mental wellbeing while they wait for NHS treatment.
The website has an accessibility toolbar which lets visitors translate the content into over 100 languages, hear the text out loud, use reading aids and change text style.
You can download an expedite letter to send to the hospital here. You can either fill this in on your computer or print it out, then send to the hospital.
