"Delays seeing a consultant at Birmingham dental hospital"

About: Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust

(as the patient),

I attended the hospital to see a consultant regarding my jaw in May, after being referred by my local hospital in January. I only got to see a dentist, not the consultant. I have now had a scan in June. I have received a letter now to get results the end of September. I feel that this is poor service with no care or thought of the patient. That will be nearly 10 months after referral to see the consultant (if the consultant in that day at all)!
