Chesterfield Royal Hospital are using Waiting List Validation to check in with patients.

Waiting List Validation allows us to improve communications with patients, using the Patient Hub to ensure patients who have been referred to our waiting list, still wish to remain on our waiting list. 

This allows you to keep us better informed about your care needs, which in turn helps reduce waiting times for appointments.

For additional details, including general information, please refer to the short recording or the FAQs provided below.
