Patient Access Policy


‘Any reference within the Policy to Standard Operating procedures (SOP’s), is for internal use only’.


The NHS Constitution makes the pledge that patients can expect to start their consultant – led treatment within a maximum of 18 weeks from referral for non urgent conditions unless the patient chooses to wait longer or it is clinically appropriate that they do so. If you feel that you are unlikely to receive the start of your treatment within 18 Weeks, please contact your local Care Commissioning Group who are responsible for commissioning services from the Trust.
