"Procedure OK but I am waiting for results"

I was referred to the Dermatology Department at Rotherham District General Hospital by my GP to investigate a small lump on my left ear lope. I was seen within 2 weeks.
The consultant advised the lump to be removed for investigation and the procedure was carried out about a week later.
I am still awaiting the results which I am told takes 3 to 4 weeks.
The consultation and procedure were OK and I was kept informed.
I have limited mobility and the nursing staff were very helpful assisting me on and off the treatment table.
The stitches were removed about 10 days later at my GP surgery.
One area I think should be improved is the waiting time for results. 3 to 4 weeks seems a rather long wait!
