"4 week wait for breast clinic"
Posted by Keepingpositive (as ),
Went to my gp with a change in my nipple/ breast and was referred to breast clinic as an urgent referral. 1 week later I get an appointment through for a further 4 weeks time. NICE guidelines state all potential breast cancer cases should be seen within 2 weeks. Why do I need to wait for 5 weeks for something that the nhs state should be seen within the 2 week timeframe? ? I called the appointment number to be told that was the first appointment available. This is so not acceptable when you have this potential diagnosis hanging over you! ! !
