    Ive been seeing the doctor about a long term problem for a while now, and ive just been today and he said he doesnt think sending me to a consultant at the hosiptal will do any good but hes happy to do that if I want to, so I said yes.
    But now im wishing I just said no and left it.

    I was told I would receive a letter in a few weeks, so what I want to know is can I still get out of going? When I receive the letter could I just ignore it/ring to cancel the appointment or will the NHS keep contacting me until I go?

    Thanks for any help, I really appreciate it.

    I would probably phone the surgery and leave a message for your GP.

    I'm pretty sure you can just cancel. You can even just not show up (it happens), though I wouldn't advise that as it is a waste of NHS time/money.

    Thank you I think I will wait till the letter comes and if it gives me an appointment time I will ring up and cancel, the last thing I want to do is waste NHS money. Im just worried because im moving home from university soon and I don't want my parents to know anything about it. Thanks again

    I just got a letter to see a specialist and it had an appointment time/date. There was an option to call or go online to change the appointment and I'm pretty sure you can cancel it that way too. I wouldn't worry about it going to your parents, if they have your uni address that's where they'll post it.
