Waiting Times

RUH Wait Times for First Outpatient Appointment and Admitted Treatment from Point of Referral

  • Outpatient waits indicate the waiting time for a routine referral received at the end of the reported month
  • Average treatment waits are for all patients treated in month including 2-week waits and urgent cases

We apologise that many patient appointments have been delayed during the COVID19 Pandemic. To ensure patient safety, each specialty is working to provide clinical review by a telephone, video or face to face appointments for as many patients as is safe to do so. Social distancing measures are in place in all outpatient departments for those patients where face to face appointments are essential. Patients with COVID19 symptoms should not attend appointments.
