After your outpatient appointment

After you have been seen by the doctor, you may be asked to go for further tests, examinations or the fitting of an appliance.

You will be given an appointment slip which must be handed to the receptionist before you leave the hospital. This will tell the receptionist whether you require a further appointment. If you do, they will book this for you and enter the time and date on your appointment card.

If the reception desk is unmanned, the nurse will retain your slip; should you require a further appointment, this will be sent to you by post.
