"Second time I've been referred"

Have been referred twice, both times I have been discharged due to the fact I can go to work, but I am still unable to do anything else. My close friend was also referred here beginning of last year and was told there was a waiting list to see a consultant. Both times I have said that I need more hlp, have been told that I would have an appointment to discuss this to find discharge papers sent to me in the post. Disgusting service, if that's what you call it.
