"waiting times for dermatology"

About: Ipswich Hospital

I had an appointment earlier this year in dermatology but was not happy with the outcome and now i have been referred again and have to wait 5 months again for an appointment. It appears when you get older and more likely to need treatment you cannot get it and if you can find a private specialist and can afford their extortinate fees then that seems the only way forward and it will not get better it will get worse.
