Our waiting times

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 only deal with scheduled care, and no emergency cases, not only are our waiting times short, but the NHS patients who use our services know they’ll get the treatment they were expecting, on the day they were expecting it.
