My Doctor left a form for me to telephone for a Micro-suction appointment. I did so on the 22nd of May 2013. I was asked where I would like it done and requested Newton Abbot Hospital as I live locally.
The first appointment I could have was 21st of June. I had not had to wait this long before and suffered a lot of discomfort and some pain waiting for a month to have it done.
When I told the Doctor who did the micro-suction he was quite concerned as the system was changed some time ago to prevent patients having to go onto a 'waiting' list! He did say that he would raise questions about this and I am concerned that I will have to wait for a long time next time.
