"Waiting times for a respiratory consultation"
Posted by Cruise Cough (as ),
My GP referred me to Wishaw General for a respiratory consultation. I was told the waiting time was 12 weeks.
After 14 weeks I called to enquire and was informed the waiting time was 20 to 26 weeks.
I informed my GP practice who were surprised as they believed they should have been informed when the waiting time went up from 12 weeks.
12 weeks is long enough but to be kept hanging on week after week waiting on an appointment is not acceptable.
I have had my consultation, tests and now await the results. I am happy with the service I am receiving now.
