Choosing your hospital or clinic

You may have more than one hospital or clinic to choose from, but, the options will be the same if you book online or over the phone.

Consider all the options before choosing a hospital or clinic and appointment slot.

For example:

  • How long do I have to wait for my first appointment?
  • How quickly can I start my treatment?
  • How far away is the hospital or clinic?

In most cases, you have the legal right to choose the hospital or service you'd like to go to. This includes private hospitals, as long as they provide NHS services.
