Referrals

Devon Referral Support Service

If you have been referred to hospital and are waiting for an outpatient appointment, a diagnostic test or an operation and wish to know how long you may expect to wait, please use one of the contact methods below: 

Your GP and the practice are unable to provide up to date waiting time information so this is the best route for you to use to understand how long you may expect to wait.

Due to Covid 19, waiting times are longer than usual. The NHS is working hard to give people information about how long you will wait. All the hospitals in Devon are making sure care is given to people most in clinical need first.
