If you are placed on the urgent list, a letter will be sent to you immediately asking for you to call the department to make a convenient appointment. If you are placed in a routine waiting list, you will be sent a letter that will ask you to phone and make an appointment once you are near the top of that list. If we have no contact from you within a month of the letter having been sent, you will be discharged. A further letter will then be sent to you to confirm that you have been discharged."
