New appointments

A new appointment at a specialist clinic is recorded when a person is seen by that particular clinic for the first time.

About new appointments by specialty

One patient may have multiple new appointments. This occurs when a patient from one specialist clinic is also seen for the first time by a clinician from another specialist clinic. For example, a patient with diabetes may be referred to an endocrinologist and a dietician, and will have a new appointment for each specialty.
