Cancel Your Hospital Appointment

Please contact us as soon as possible if you are unable to attend your hospital appointment so that your slot can be used for another patient.

You can cancel your appointment with the clerk at the hospital on the telephone number provided in your appointment letter or email as follows: 

Anglesey and Gwynedd:
Conwy and Denbighshire:
Wrexham and Flintshire:

Each outpatient appointment costs the Health Board up to £150.00.  If you miss an appointment and don’t tell us in advance, we can’t re-use this money and patients have to wait longer for an appointment.

You may wait longer or be referred back to your GP if you fail to let us know.

Cancelling Physiotherapy Appointments

You can contact us via the telephone number provided in your appointment letter or by email as follows:

In the email subject heading please use the word Cancellation and also the clinic venue you are cancelling, e.g. Cancellation Colwyn Bay
