Finally received appointment for breast screening. Not looking forward to having it done, but know how important it is. Appointment is for 3 weeks time. I'm really busy at work and can't free up my diary at such short notice. Called to reschedule for 6-7 weeks time. Was told appointments couldn't be made that far in advance. I have to call back in 2-3 weeks. How frustrating. Luckily, I will remember to call back. Will my diary still have some flexibility by then? - Who knows. If compliance with screening is to improve, perhaps some thought needs to go into how appointments are scheduled.
