"Outpaints appointment"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

I have been referred by my GP to the Gynae services I am most unsatisfied as I have received a letter asking me to book a telephone assessment. What this is in fact is an appointment to make an appointment. I have waited 3 weeks from first seeing my GP I will now wait two week to make to have a telephone conversation to make an appointment.

The fact that I am in constant pain does not seem to matter.
