Cancel or change an appointment

If you’re unable to make your scheduled appointment or clinic, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer your slot to other patients.

Missed appointments cost the NHS hundreds of millions of pounds each year. This money could be spent on improving services and treatment for patients.

Your appointment letter contains information about who to call if you need to cancel or change your appointment. However, we’ve listed our main departments below, so if you can’t find your letter please call the relevant department. If you can’t see your department, please take a look at our services.


If you’re unsure about who to contact, please call the main telephone number for the hospital where you are due to have your appointment.
