Welcome to Outpatients

Changing or cancelling your appointment or Outpatient enquires

To cancel or change any other appointment or if you have enquires about an Outpatient appointment please contact the Outpatients Referral Line on 01733 673555 and select from the options provided.

Please note lunchtimes and Mondays are our busiest periods.

Alternatively you may email us  using the email contact in the table below depending on which specialty your appointment relates to. Emails will be responded to within 48hours.

More information such as parking and how to find us can be found here.     


The Trust has partnered with DrDoctor to introduce a brand new patient portal and text message reminder service designed to make it easier for you to manage your outpatient appointment.

You will now receive a text message to notify you of an outpatient appointment, reminding you of your upcoming appointment or inform you that your appointment has been cancelled, from DrDoctor. The text will be delivered from a +447860039092 mobile number, stating it is from North West Anglia NHS Trust. 

Text messages will include a link (drdoctor.thirdparty.nhs.uk/nwangliaft) to a secure patient portal, where you will be to see more information about your appointment on the new patient portal. This can be access on your smartphone, tablet or desktop PC.  You will also have the option to sign up for email reminders via DrDoctor rather than text reminders. You can find out more information here.
