What could be improved

Waiting time on letters being typed.

Anything else?

My mother is waiting on an urgent eye operation, and has been refered to the QA from the Isle of Wight, I don't have a problem with this. However we were informed that there is a 4 week waiting time on the letters from Consultants to be typed and sent out. Which means it would be at least 5 weeks before the tape recording would have been heard and typed up, each week there is a delay means less sight my mother will keep. This is unacceptable in a new hospital where millions of pounds have been spent, we were informded the the recordings are sent off site !!!!! Why ?
