"Waiting so long for an appointment for a scan"

About: Broomfield Hospital

Anything else?

My husband has got Parkinson and has got cellulitis in his leg. We have been waiting nearly 6 weeks for an appointment for a scan and his doctor has chased it up and we still haven't heard. Its getting my husband down as he can't walk very far and is saying he will get a mobility scooter. I don't think this is acceptable.
