Patient Choice

The Choose & Book facility highlights the choices available to each of your patients.
On referral they will initially be offered a choice of hospitals listed according to just two facts - distance from their home, and waiting time.

Whilst most patients will be aware that a choice is available, in many cases they are unlikely to have sufficient up-to-date knowledge on which to make the best choice for them. We’d like to help you, to help them.
