It is distressing and I am sorry you have ad this trouble. I suggest that you telephone the gastroenterologist's secretary and see whether they can bring it forward or not, let you know if there is a cancellation, or make it an urgent one. Some hospitals are a lot more flexible than others on this I am afraid.


Hi Alan, rather than wait for a call that may not happen I found the number of my local hospital appointment bookers and rang them.they confirmed my appointment was booked.saw gp today re pelvic pain snd what may the cause be-from op i had two years ago or a prolapse and now very concerned it is serious cos she said wait til seen consultant as they may be connected.my gp had rushed it thru as urgent.I'm just waiting on the appt letter to come through.
