"Long wait for appointment with haematologist"

I was an in patient at the LGI in January 2015 after being diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism.
Upon being discharged I was informed that I would be referred to a haematologist as I would need to be on life long anticoagulation medication.
It is now 15 months later and I still have not been seen.
My pulmonary consultant is supposed to have chased up this appointment as has my GP and I have also contacted the haematologist myself - all to no avail.
Is it normal to have to wait this long???
