Original visit to doctor in June 2016. He advised referral for nail removal on that date.
No word from Podiatry Services. Second visit to doctor on in August 2016 when nail was causing further trouble. Subsequent referral resulted in appointment at Bourtreehill Medical Centre for, I assumed, removal of nail. This appointment was in late September 2016.
I was led to believe the referral had been triaged for assessment only instead of for surgery as my doctor had requested. It appears I now have to go on the surgery waiting list, 5 weeks later than I should have been and more than 3 months since I hoped to have been.
This is an urgent, necessary procedure to alleviate a condition which has caused much pain and infection already and the delay is unacceptable.
