Referral Waiting Game

Posted , 8 users are following.

Got letter from GP on Friday last week saying my referral is urgent and will have appointment by 2nd November. If I didn't receive my appointment by then to call, no appointment arrived so I called the hospital to be told my referral had been marked urgent but there are no appointments available. They say routine appointments are currently 22 weeks so mine will be sooner but they couldn't advice any further. So back to playing a waiting game trying to manage the pain on a daily basis.

Sorry for the rant guys
