Your referral is sent to the hospital via an email and processed by the hospital who will send you an appointment direct. With most clinics at the hospital this can take up to 8-12 weeks to receive an appointment. If you are concerned that an appointment has not been sent to you please call the Hospital Appointment Service who will be able to help you.
