"Waiting for an ENT appointment"

About: University Hospital Hairmyres / Ear, Nose & Throat

(as the patient),

I have been waiting for an ENT appointment since late 2017, have developed severe Tinnitus in my left ear which is getting worse. Got an appointment for Hairmyres a few months ago, but it was only for a hearing test, so disappointed.

Was told at that time I would be given a 'proper' ENT appointment shortly, it is now nearly June and still not received anything. Feel that 6 months for a 'real'  ENT appointment is unacceptable and worrying as I previously have had cancer and worried that it may be connected.
