We will be communicating with our patients about waiting times. We are writing to 55,000 patients who are experiencing waiting times in excess of referral to treatment standards.

The mailing will include a letter and leaflet explaining what the delay in treatment means for them, and provide guidance on who they should contact if their condition becomes worse.

This is likely to result in an increase in calls directly to services. Patients should be reviewed in line with your business as usual processes. Please contact comms@addenbrookes.nhs.uk if you have any queries regarding the mailing.
