"Can't actually get hold of anyone!"

I have been referred to Pinderfields dentistry for a wisdom tooth removal.
I spoke to my dentist who said they referred me in early December, I have still not received an appointment.
I spoke to my dentist who said it could take up to 24 weeks (!) to get this out and I needed to contact the hospital directly to find out where I am on the list - which is all very well... but after being on hold for one hour it's quite difficult to get in touch with them.
I am in considerable discomfort, and can't believe I have to wait up to 18 weeks for such a small procedure.
When I had my first wisdom tooth out at Leeds Dental Institute I was able to contact them quickly, and rearrange an appointment that suited me - this was all done within a month.
I will no doubt receive a generic reply to tell me to contact the hospital, but seeing as I can't actually get hold of anyone there it's pretty pointless really.
I might register at a dentist in Leeds and see if I can get in there any quicker.
