"Waiting 10-14 weeks for 1st appointment"

About: Salford Royal / Dermatology

(as the patient),

My GP had tried to treat my eczema, but has now decided that I need to see a dermatologist. She said that it would be better if he saw it at its worst, so has given me no further treatment. (I agreed to this).

I have now been told that I will have to wait for 10 to 14 weeks for 1st appointment, which is quite unacceptable to me.

Wish I had a story to tell!
