Outpatient Appointment
Description

I would be grateful if you could let me know the longest waiting time for an Outpatient appointment on 15th July 2018 to see a chest physician

Response

We do not hold this information as waiting list and time information is held in real time. For new patients we release clinic slots 12 weeks in advance, for all new outpatients our average wait is 12.5 weeks, for routine patients (excluding fast-track and urgent) the average waiting time is 17.5 weeks. Currently our longest wait is 46 weeks but there are specific circumstances in relation to individual long waiters.
