Request Re High Volume of Referrals to HHFT Breast Service
Please note, that the HHFT Breast Service are currently experiencing a high level of referrals which is resulting in a slight delay in patients receiving an appointment. It would be greatly appreciated if Primary Care could ensure that patients are aware that there may be a delay in receiving their appointment and to leave it for at least 2 - 3 weeks before contacting the department to check their referral status. This will hopefully reduce the number of calls coming through to both Primary Care and the Breast Service and enable the administrative team to focus on getting appointments booked.
Many thanks for your support.
