"Where is my appointment?"

Having had my 8 month old son referred to a peadiatrician, I have just waited a week to be given a telephone number to get an appointment. On ringing this number, it appears that this just gets me on the the Royal Devon & Exeter waiting list and I now need to wait a week - 10 days for them to decide when and where my appointment will be. The appointment will probably then be a few weeks after that. Why wasn't I put on the RD&E waiting list when I was first referred rather than having to go through this system (DART - Devon Access and Referral Team) which is supposed to make things quicker and more efficient but which has actually just delayed things for my son by a week or more?
