How long will it be before I get to see someone/receive an appointment? There is some variation in the length people have to wait to be seen because demand sometimes varies between the different parts of our service. We aim to be as fair as possible, seeing people in the order that they were referred. If you have specific requirements (e.g. seeing a female therapist, evening appointments, being seen at a particular place) this could mean that you might have to wait a bit longer.
