"Long waiting lists and lack of information"

My GP has made an urgent referral for me to see a Neurologist - he assured me that it would be 3 weeks at the most for urgent cases - that was 3 weeks ago.
I rang the hospital today to be told by a disinterested appointments clerk that the waiting list for urgent referrals is 12 weeks.
My GP is trying to get me an earlier appointment, it's not his fault, he has tried his best.
There seems to be a lack of information coming from the hospital to GPs on the current length of waiting lists.
My GP wouldn't have referred me as an urgent case if he didn't feel it was necessary. I am in a lot of discomfort.
