"Urgent Appointment"

About: Chapel Allerton Hospital

I saw my GP on Tues evening about an ongoing skin complaint - they felt it needed to be seen by a consultant dermatologist. The GP rang the on- call dermatologist, who gave them some medication to prescribe me. The on-call registrar said they would contact the dermatology department to arrange an appointment. The dermatology outpatients has just rang me to arrange an appointment - as the on-call dermatologist had sent a letter down to get an appointment for me. So the end result is I have an appointment on Monday morning. An excellent service between my GP, on-call registrar, and dermatology department.
