Appointments

Most of our community health and mental health services are provided on an appointment-only basis.

This usually follows a referral from a general practitioner (GP) or other healthcare professional, although for some services you may also refer yourself.

For most sexual health services, you can just walk in, but check with your chosen clinic beforehand.

Information about how to access each service is provided in the Services section. If you know the name of the service you require, use the service finder.

Choose and Book

Choose and Book is a national electronic referral service which gives patients a choice of place, date and time for their first outpatient appointment in a hospital or clinic. If your GP has referred you to one of our services using Choose and Book, information about how to make your appointment will be sent to you by letter.
