I was referred to a respiratory specialist in August 2013 and saw a doctor at Cumnock Hospital. I was informed I should have a ct scan plus a lung function test as it was suspected I had asbestosis. I had my ct scan and my lung function test a few weeks later, I was expecting to see the doctor in the near future but I received a letter today to say I won't be having an appointment until weeks later. I have found out from my own GP that I have asbestosis but I've not had a word or letter from the doctor I saw to confirm this. As you can only claim so far back for this disease, I think NHS Scotland needs to look into this.
