Went to my doctors 10 days ago and they told me they would refer me to a specialist for my eye problem.
Which according to the letter I received a few days later, was a service I thought I would get.
I rang up to make an appointment and the operator said they would have to speak to a G. P first and then they would get back to me.
When they called back they told me I couldn’t get the treatment and was told I would need to go back to my doctor, but I don’t know what they can do as they referred me for the treatment in the first place.
I have an appointment to see my doctor but I feel like I am stuck in a loop and I don’t know how to proceed.
On the letter I received it only mentions that I might not be offered a choice of hospitals, not that I might not be able to see a specialist at all
