I had an appointment arranged by my GP in Early September asking that I be seen as soon as possible although it was not an ‘urgent’ referral.
I have now had an appointment come through whichwas late January, 20 weeks after my GP wrote to them. You are supposed to be seen within 12 weeks of a referral and I know there have been holidays in between so I could understand a couple of weeks either way but not 20.
I informed my GP that I had not heard from the hospital, she contacted them again, and the appointment is still 20 weeks after the initial referral, 8 weeks over the acceptable waiting time.
