I was disappointed that the referral from my GP was not specific enough to direct the appointment to the person I waited to see – but was generic and had to go through junior doctors prior to seeing the consultant.
In my case, I explained fully the reason why and to whom I wanted to be referred – thus cutting out valuable time wasting on unnecessary appointments.
Albeit my condition is not life threatening – I think the service could be more efficient by GPs acknowledging a specific request and not putting in a generic referral.
