You must tell us as soon as possible if your appointment date is unsuitable or you become unable to attend. We can then reallocate the slot to another patient. Each unfilled appointment slot costs the NHS £160.

Tell us you cannot attend by calling on 01253 953540.

Alternatively, write to the Appointments Office at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, Seasiders Way, Blackpool, FY1 6JX.

If you don’t notify us that you can’t attend, you may be discharged back to the care of your GP and will have to be re-referred to us if you need treatment in the future.
