When you arrive at the hospital you must first check in at the general reception. Afterwards, you will be referred to the orthopaedic polyclinic where you must check in again with the department’s secretariat. This is when the secretary notes your arrival in the doctor’s agenda.
You always have to check in twice
If special requests are involved with a lot of paperwork please inform the secretariat in advance. This means it can be taken into account when the consultation schedule is compiled so that waiting times can be limited.
After the consultation
After the consultation you report back to the department’s secretariat. This is where the necessary appointments and/or tests are booked for you. You will receive a written record of all the appointments specifying the time and location.
