My first time writing here, I was referred by my GP to the gynaecology department at my local hospital in March and have had three appointments cancelled since this. My new appointment (if it goes ahead) is in October, which puts my referral wait time at 28 WEEKS! I am fuming! Obviously this is massively outside the 18 week referral guarantee. So annoying, after years of endless smear tests, ultrasounds, being told I have PCOS and continuous pain - I was so relieved a doctor had finally referred me. And. Now. This.
Noticed a few of you have had similar issues with hospital referrals, what would you recommend I do at this stage? Who's best to involve in the complaints process?
Thankfully my pain seems to be hugely improved recently, but who knows if this will still be the case by October.
Thanks in advance for your help, it's very appreciated!
