I was wondering if anyone knew how long it was reasonable to expect to wait for a referral to a consultant?
I moved from London to the middle of nowhere at the beginning of January and my old consultant and GP were really good in contacting people with the aim of a smooth/swift transfer of care, especially as I'm on Omalizumab. The problem is, I've heard nothing, other than a letter from my new GP so I know a request for a referral has been made. I did speak to the health centre and they said leave it 3 more weeks and then contact the hospital.
The trouble is, I'm struggling now, and I don't have anyone I can see. I saw my new GP after I moved and he seemed fine but with my asthma he basically went 'aarrrggghhh' and said he was leaving my care entirely to my consultant as I was too difficult - that would be fine if I had a consultant! I think I'm going to have to see the GP even though he doesn't want to see me as my asthma's playing ""let's keep Ratty awake at night"" but I'm not sure what he's going to be able to do.
Any ideas how long I should wait before I start stamping my feet?
