Waiting Times

It is your right to access our services within maximum waiting times we have set by the NHS Constitution.  

This means you have the right to start consultant-led treatment within 18 weeks from referral, or to be seen by a specialist within two weeks of GP referral for a suspected cancer.

If for any reason this is not possible, it is the duty of the NHS to take all reasonable steps to offer you a quicker appointment at a range of alternative providers.

If you are concerned that you have been waiting longer than you should have for your treatment, please let us know by contacting our Patient Advice and Liaison Service.
