I have been waiting over 6 weeks now for a routine ENT appointment. I have had really loud tinnitus for 3 months now and am worried that I haven't had a specialist or any sort of scan to check if there is an underlying cause for the noise. I phoned up appointments at Crosshouse Hospital today and was told there is a waiting time exceeding 12 weeks. I don't know what exceeding 12 weeks means. Does it mean 20 weeks? 30 weeks? The staff couldn't tell me. I feel very unhappy that I have to cope with an undiagnosed condition for an undetermined length of time.
