"Long wait for dermatology biopsy results"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Anything else?

It is a very unsatisfactory situation when someone may have skin cancer and they were told that the biopsy results would be back in 2 to 4 weeks only to find out that because of backlogs the wait is up to 8 weeks or considerably longer. A very poor service!
