"Why the wait"

About: Maidstone District General Hospital

After attending, yet again, the department appears to be unable or unwilling to progress treatment without a 3 or 4 weeks delay for every test or scan. I have now been going to the hospital for a year without a conclusion let alone treatment. My condition has worsened. I would have been treated more quickly at the vets.
