I would be grateful if someone within the dermatology department at Ninewells Hospital could advise in relation to waiting time for a new referral appointment sent by my GMP. Following a sudden bereavement in March 2020 I had rapid hair loss and was referred to the service to determine if there was any support that could be offered to me in term of management of my condition. I am fully aware of restrictions that have been placed on outpatient services due to the current pandemic situation, however I have contacted the department appointments team on two separate occasions and on both occasions the response has been less than ideal. Being told that there are other people on the waiting list who have been there a lot longer than me is not helpful in any way. All I want to know given that my symptoms are ongoing is can an indicative time frame for an appointment be given.
