Repeat Appointments

Returning to CMC

Booking Appointments for Patients coming back to CMC

Patients who come back to CMC will have a hospital number. You may be coming back for follow up – to see the doctor you saw before. Or to see a new doctor. But you have registered before and have a CMC hospital number. So you do not need to register again.

You can book another appointment on-line, by phone, by post/courier or by coming to the hospital. Your appointment will only be confirmed after you have paid.

What Appointment do you Want?

All patients wanting an appointment need to give us the following information.

  • Departments: Please tell us the department(s) you want to see. This is the doctor you will consult in OPD.
    • If you are not sure, just tell us what your problems are or send any medical reports about the problem. We can then make the right appointment for you.
  • General or Private: Would you like a general appointment or private appointment?
    • As a General Patient, you will be seen by one of the junior doctors from the department you choose.
    • As a Private Patient, you will meet a consultant from the department you choose.
  • Date: What date would you like the appointment? Some clinics are only open one day a week.
    • Please do not forget that you will need to book your travel.
    • It is best to make train reservations to arrive in Vellore on the evening before your appointment date. You can arrive any time before this, if you wish.

How you can book your appointment.

You can register on-line, by phone, by post/courier or by coming to the hospital.

The call centre is very busy and callers often cannot get through immediately at the moment. The hospital is aware of this and very sorry for the problem. They are sorting this out and hope it will be resolved soon.
