I've had breast pain since mid-Feb 2015, my doctor has given me tramadol, solpadol, and ibuprofen the latter has helped with the pain.
I asked to be referred to a breast consultant. I've been told today by the receptionist at my GPs that it was an non-urgent referral. I phoned the hospital and spoke to someone at the breast clinic. They confirmed that that letter is a non-urgent referral.
I will be waiting 10 weeks for an appointment, this can't be right. I live in Glasgow. I'm prepared to travel to any hospital that has an earlier appointment.
