Help us, help you
When requesting care, please help us by telling us what’s wrong. It helps ensure you get the right care as urgently as you need from the right medical team member. It also helps our medical team us to prioritise patients who need our care most.
But if you prefer not to say what’s wrong – for example, when talking to our reception team – they will always respect your privacy. However, it’s an important part of their job to ask. Thank you for your understanding.
Please also tell us if:
- You would prefer us to talk with you by phone, face-to-face or by video call
- You need to speak to a particular person because they have treated you before
- There are certain times of day when you can’t talk, for example you are at work, at school or college
- You need English to be interpreted or you need help from another person at your appointment.
We try hard to take account of all appropriate needs, but please remember: if you are unwell, our priority will be to ensure you receive care as quickly as possible.
