An outpatient is a patient who is not hospitalised (doesn't stay overnight) but who visits a hospital, clinic, or associated facility for diagnosis or treatment. Treatment provided in this fashion is called ambulatory care.

We treat more than 370,000 outpatients each year across our four hospital sites. Our staff are dedicated healthcare professionals who are committed to making your visit as easy and stress-free as possible.

The information in this section will tell you more about your appointment and why it is important to keep it, your treatment at the hospital and facilities and support services we offer at our hospitals.

  • Your appointment Please be on time for your appointment - if you do arrive late, people who are on time may be seen before you. It is not recommended that you arrive more than ten minutes before your appointment time.
  • Your treatment You will be seen by a senior clinician who is responsible for your care. This is most likely to be a consultant or a member of their medical team.
  • At the hospital Information about facilities and support services at our hospitals.
