Junior Doctors’ Industrial Action Winter 2022 Newsletter – Created by our Patient Participation Group Help Us Help You, Be Kind Young Carers Support

If you have been unable to contact outpatients or the secretary please contacts PALS (Patient Advice and Liaison Service) for the hospital that you have been referred to. These contact details will be on their website.
ONLY contact the surgery if you have had a change in the symptoms that you have been referred for. If that is the case, ask for an appointment with one of our doctors.
