"Waiting Time - Cataract"

My father is 84 years old and finally after more than a 6 week waiting time got an appointment to see the Doctor. He was told yesterday that his first eye will be done the second week in June, second one minimum 6 weeks later. I think this waiting time is absolutely disgraceful. He is confined to the house as he cannot drive the car. He is slowly deteriorating with his Parkinsons and now has to wait in total of over 8 months before he can drive again. This is a joke. He has worked every day of his working life and now has to hang around waiting for 8 months for an operation in what could be his final years.
