Waiting times

You have been referred to the hospital for further treatment by your General Practitioner (G.P.) and would like to be treated as soon as possible. Hospital waiting times depend on various factors.

Actual waiting times

If you are coming from another hospital or have been referred by your G.P. you have to come to the Outpatients' Department before treatment.

The quoted waiting times are the planning times in days from when the appointment is made. The figures show the actual waiting times. The reported waiting times can vary from the actual time that you have to wait. Unexpected or exceptional circumstances can occur that may increase or even reduce the waiting times

No rights can be derived from the quoted waiting times.

Waiting time Outpatient Clinic
