What could be improved
I was under the impression that my referral from GP to consultant should have been achieved within 18 weeks. At 18 weeks I was informed verbally that the waiting list for ny consultant was 32 weeks. I was offered no alternative. In the event, my wait was 48 weeks. As my condition was threatening to curtail my career as my GP was informed, and liable to be exacerbated by delay, I find this delay to be unacceptable. I have now been put on a further waiting list for actual treatment and am finding my condition to be worsening rapidly. I have little confidence in being able to resume my work at the professional level to which I am accustomed as a result of these delays.
