"Getting hold of results"

I was told by a consultant on 4th Nov 2013 that my biopsy results will be sent directly to me within 14 days. It is now 22 days since my biopsy and I still can't have access to my result. I have been sent on a wild goose chase: after numerous phone calls, a medical secretary said the consultant was away and will ring me when she returned. When she did not call, I phoned Whittington again and was told that I now need to contact my GP. I rang my GP who says they haven't got the results. I now need to make an emergency appointment to ask my GP if he has my results. How inefficient and uncaring can NHS be.
