Our Patient Access policy outlines the Trust's approach to accessing treatment and management patient pathways:

  • sets out the rules and principles under which the Trust manages elective access to outpatient appointments, diagnostics and elective inpatient or day case treatment

  • demonstrates how elective access rules should be applied consistently, fairly and equitably
