I went to see my GP and was told I was going to be referred to hospital. I thought my GP would sort this but a week later I get a letter asking me to Phone DART. In my eyes this is a week wasted.
I then rang this service and they ask which hospital I want to use. There is one right up the road from me so of course I would want to use that one. I could have gone there and made the appointment myself!
I would like to know who is paying for this service; does it come out of the GP budget. We never get asked about how we want to spend our tax contributions.
