I saw an ENT consultant in April about what I thought to be vocal cord dysfunction, which he confirmed a suspicion of and referred me to a speech therapist for formal diagnosis/treatment.
3 months later in July I was CCed into a letter back to ENT from that trust saying their speech therapy dept didn't have the specialist skills needed for VCD and I needed re-referring to a specialist service further away.
I have now made two calls to the ENT dept over the course of three weeks to check if this referral has been made and been asked to leave a number for a call back each time - have heard nothing.
I feel completely lost in the system and angry that a trust should take 3 months just to reply saying they don't offer a the treatment that was referred for. Any advice you can give as to how to get a firm answer and get the treatment I need from the specialist service would be appreciated.
