Is a 9 month wait to see your consultant usual practice because most consultants have a very heavy case load and the nurses lead the clinics or are other people seeing theirs more regularly? My consultant wanted to see me in January but when we tried to book the appointment in October she wasn't free until the end of June which they just cancelled and moved to the end of July. In the meantime the hospital have sent me an appointment with a doctor I have not met before to discuss new treatment as I have been unresponsive so far. If its normal at all hospitals I'll stay where I am even though I've since moved house, but if my hospital is particularly busy as it is a major one in London then I'll consider moving my treatment because I dread the thought of being bounced between doctors and having to explain my history each time. I was just hoping to find out about other people's experiences?
