"My continuing 18 week referral saga. "

About: Surrey PCT

(as the patient),

I posted my story 4 months ago (view here) so that I could let you know about a 28 week delay that I had experienced when trying to get help with a prostate problem. Thought that you might like to know that it is now 45 weeks since I first saw my GP and I still do not have a date for any remedial action to be taken. Most (but not all) tests have gradually taken place with endless delays in between and even the SurreyPCT/NHS, which had provided help following the posting of my original story, did not even bother to reply to my email when I asked for help again. Is this really what we have come to expect of the NHS?
