I have suffered from bad nose bleeds for a year now and my GP suggested the next major bleed I should visit your A&E.
Unfortunately I had a reoccurance on 23rd Dec 15 and found the hospital team extremely helpful and sympathetic, however they could not see the place where the bleed starts and recommended that I see my GP again for a referral to your ENT specialists which I did 29th Dec.
Unfortunately I had a bleed that lasting over 2 hrs in the early hours of today 30th Dec - eventually stopping.
I telephoned your reception and they say it could take up to 18 weeks to get an appointment - This worries me and I would like to know if this is correct please as I am considering seeing if I can get a private appointment locally if this is correct but as I am a widow and on a pension realise that this might be very expensive - can you let me know please.
