"Waiting...and waiting..."

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

Anything else?

As the other review stated the waiting times for an appointment is horrendous, i have been waiting 16 weeks for first appointment (the outcome of which was unsatisfactory) and now another 16 for a follow up and my condition is worsening. When i did get my first appointment it was running over an hour late and when i eventually did get in the doctor wasnt pleasant (i assume because they're so stretched for time) and i felt like cattle just shipped in and out as quickly as possible.
