"Just how long do you have to wit?"

About: Amersham Hospital

Having been referred to the unit in October I was given an appointment in February. But the doctor was sick that day so I was offered one a few days later, which I was unable to make. The next available date was 28th April (10 weeks later and six months after the referral). On arrival there on 28th they had no record of my appointment. Just how long do you have to wait to see a doctor at this hospital?
