To avoid cancellation, it is very important to confirm your booking date as soon as possible when you receive your admission letter. The decision to cancel a procedure is one that is not made lightly. As we are a large organisation with a large Emergency Department, our service capacities change constantly. This means that although a bed has been booked for you, the bed may no longer be available due to emergency demand. In this instance you will be notified at earliest possible time and a new procedure date will be sent to you as soon as possible.
