I was referred to the Breast Surgery Unit following a visit to my GP on 26th March, 2013. An appointment was made with the unit for 4th April and I was seen on time. I have no complaints about the care I received during my visit. However, following a mammagram, ultrasound and biopsy, I was told that my results would not be known until the following Thursday and I would receive a phone call or letter, depending on the result. On 15th April I rang the unit to say I had not received any information and the consultant's secretary rang me the following day to say a letter was being prepared and should be received by the end of the week. Today, 22nd April, I have still received nothing so rang my GP surgery who confirm they have an undated report and I have had to make an appointment to find out what is in the report. I feel that this has all taken far too long, and I still do not know the outcome of my visit.
