"Delay in hearing about ENT referral"

About: Royal Hospital for Sick Children (Edinburgh) / Ear, Nose & Throat

(as a relative),

My 5 year old son has had 7 bouts of recurrent tonsillitis since 31st October 2014.

He was referred by my GP at start of Feb 2015 and have still not heard anything. I have phoned ENT without much help, being told that they still have cases dating back to November 2014 and it will be at least another 2 months before I hear anything.

I really don't find this fair at all. Each time he has been on antibiotics with not much response. He really suffers with this, and his school is also concerned at his absences since this time.
