Only appointment offered was B/North Hospital which has very limited parking, is 25miles away and I don’t know how whether I should be parking and walking to the hospital at my age and with a heart condition.
TRAQS told me if I want an appointment at the PR Hospital to ring another number. I did this and the person I spoke to said she didn’t know why I had been asked to do this and they couldn’t give me an appointment without knowing the urgency but it would be within government guidelines of 18 weeks.
Appointment letter arrived in mid January with unwanted B/North Hospital appointment. I phoned back and was told PR hospital would ring me by the end of January, but if they didn’t to back to GP.
I am disgusted with how long I am having to wait for an appointment.
