"What is the point in Urgent Appointments!"

About: Trafford General Hospital

So the hospital make a mistake and send me for 2 MR Scans within 4 months of each other when i needed a CT Scan. Then i have to kick off in order to get a response and get booked in for the correct CT Scan. That was on the 24th of July and after being told by the Orthopaedic secretary that they have pushed for a urgent appointment for my results i now have a letter to state that my appointment will be the end of September regardless of the pains and issues that the detachment of my knee is causing to the rest of my life. How hard is it to give someone their results sooner, i wouldn't mind if this was the waiting time for a op but its not its for results!
