"how to book an outpatient appointment?"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

I wasted half an hour but wasn't able to book an outpatient appointment with gynecology department. My GP wrote letter to QAH 10 days ago asking for an appointment but i've not heard anything back from them. I had medical assisted abortion a year ago and was advised by the consultant to book an appointment asap when i get pregnant next time. I am into week 8 which is when they suppose to have done my first scan, but here i am chasing to book an appointment to see a doctor. Will someone please help with how to book an appointment?
