It is very important that you inform us as soon as possible if you cannot attend any appointments you have booked. This enables us to reallocate that appointment time to another patient which will help keep waiting times down to a minimum. If you cancel at very short notice, we are often unable to offer your appointment to anyone else and it costs the Trust £110 per appointment missed.
If you are unable to attend on the date specified, please inform us by completing the appropriate section on your appointment letter or card and returning it to:
The Appointments Office
Blackpool Victoria Hospital
Whinney Heys Road
Or, please telephone the appointments office on 01253 953540.
If you don’t notify us that you can’t attend, you may be discharged back to the care of your general practitioner (GP) and will have to be re-referred to us if you need treatment in the future.
