"18 from referral to treatment/admission"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

I saw my gp in July this year who referred me to a gynaecologist who I saw in sept I underwent some investigations and then saw the gynaecologist again. I was very disappointed when he told me he doesn't do the operation that I require. He referred me to a different consultant and I am now waiting to see him.The reason for this review is what happened to the 18 week clock has it is called.I have now been waiting 20 weeks and not seen the other consultant yet.
