I contacted TRAQS to see how my referral was progressing in order to determine what probably length of time I was likely to wait to see the oral consultant. I was pleasant surprised to be told that I could take an appointment the following week at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
Whilst this may have been due to a cancellation this did mean that I was able to see the consultant some two months earlier than expected. I am grateful for this.
The alternative was to go to a hospital some 30 minutes away and 6 weeks hence.
My local hospital in Telford had no appointments available in their listings. My referral from GP to TRAQS was 12 days. Slower than I expected!
