I am disgusted at the wait times.
Having been told by my consultant that I stop breathing at night and that all of the multitude of health problems are due to this, I now have to wait 2 months to get a machine so that i can sleep.
When I explained that the consultant had put in a form so I could get an urgent machine due to the fact my job (ironically I am a nurse) is being affected by this, I was told they cant do anything and it has nothing to do with them.
Surely allowing someone to breathe at night should be a higher priority! Especially as the wait times to see the consultant to get the diagnosis is already 2-3 months and the time frame for seeing positive changes once you have a machine is 3-6 months.
