I have had persistent head pain for 18 months which has become progressively worse. GP eventually agreed to referral for neurology assessment and diagnosis. Ten days later I received appointment booking information.
When I telephoned, having been offered a choice of 4 hospitals, I was advised that the first available appointment was 11 weeks away and no other appointments were currently available. I was asked to choose one hospital to which my notes would be sent for assessment and an appointment would be made if considered necessary.
I felt no consideration was given to urgency.
