"Gastroenterology Outpatient Waiting Times-at least..."

About: Worthing Hospital

I wrote a review yesterday but it appears you've not published it. This is a brief version as I expect my other review to appear. This follows on from my previous review regarding Gastroenterology waiting times. I finally got an appointment which was over 20 week wait from referral, they've now cancelled this two weeks before and there's no new appointment dates yet, outrageous. I've been left to sit at home eating foods which are making me unwell for over a year and this continues. Let's hope there's no real damage as I'm most certainly holding the hospital responsible.
