Key contacts for GPs


To make it easier for patients and GPs to contact us about hospital appointments, we have opened the PODs – or Points of Delivery teams. All of our PODs are open from 8.30 to 17.30, Monday to Friday.

The PODs bring together our administrative support teams for many of our specialist services to make it quicker and easier to arrange appointments and keep in contact with us.

Here is an all-in-one list of important phone numbers for GPs who want to contact our Trust.

Our A-Z directory of services includes contact details, which always go to the relevant POD whenever one has been established for a service. 

A full list of POD contact details by service specialty is available here.
