Access To Hospital Services

  • You have the right in a medical emergency to be admitted immediately to hospital. In cases other than in an emergency, you will be placed on a waiting list if you cannot be admitted to hospital immediately. If you are on a waiting list and are concerned about your condition, you should consult your family doctor who can then request that your condition be reviewed by your hospital consultant.
  • Where a recommended medical procedure is not available at the hospital, you will have the right to ask your hospital consultant to transfer you elsewhere where the procedure is available.
  • You have the right, should your admission be cancelled by the hospital, to receive adequate and timely notice of such cancellation. However, in exceptional cases arising from emergency pressures or staff illnesses, your operation may have to be cancelled at very short notice. In these circumstances, the hospital will make every effort to contact you in advance.
