We do not cover paediatric gastric surgery, cardiology, dermatology, ophthalmology, renal, endoscopy, urology (at the Royal Free Hospital), endocrinology or the Royal National Nose, Throat and Ear Hospital. Contact details for these services can be found on the relevant service page.

We currently provide the following services for in-patients and day cases: 

  • Booking procedures; offering choice to all patients and confirming that the dates are convenient
  • Welcome patients to the department and answering questions over the telephone
  • Liaising with patients, clinicians, wards and multidisciplinary teams
  • Co-ordinating interpreting services and arranging transport where clinically necessary
  • Providing information to patients about the treatments and care that they will receive
  • Monitor waiting times and ensure we adhere to national targets and guidance on booking

Opening Hours: Monday to Friday, 8am-6pm

Outside of these hours you will be able to leave a answerphone message, which we will respond to when the office is next open.
