Waiting times

We are currently booking appointments for people who were referred to the service in October 2017.

We cannot currently give an estimation for how long a new referral will have to wait for their first appointment, as this can depend on many factors.

We are working with commissioners to address these issues and hope to be able to reverse this upward trend in waiting times as soon as possible.
