"Wastage of NHS resources"

This is partly a complaint, but more a comment on the apparent wastage of NHS time. My GP referred me for further investigation and within a week I had received a letter from the surgery giving details of an appointment at the General Rectal Surgery Clinic at Nottingham City Hospital (Nottingham University Hospitals Trust) for June, about 3 weeks ahead. All well and good.
However, now with just a week to go, I have received another letter, from the hospital, changing the appointment to August, another 8 weeks to wait with the same symptoms.
Why bother to issue the June appointment if it couldn't be fitted in for a further 8 weeks? It wasted time and resources, as well as raising my hopes that my problems would be investigated, only to give me nearly 2 more months to wait.
