Has anyone had a hard time securing the first appointment to the nephrologist? Have been referred from my GP but 2 week still no call for an appointment?
Can't get an appointment with Nephrologist - Early CKD Support
GPs take several weeks to send a referral, and then it has to be triaged at the clearing centre, they will then write to you to contact them to either choose a hospital or make an appointment. If they refer you to a hospital the renal team will then decide when they see you. This all takes time. Also the clearing office can say you don’t meet the criteria for an appointment.
