"Skin Biopsy Results"

About: Queen's Hospital / Dermatology

(as the patient),

I was told by the consultant when I had my skin biopsy that my results would be sent to me in 2 weeks. When I rang the secretary to see if they were in I was told that she was swamped with people ringing her because they were misinformed about the wait and there was a 3 week delay however when I rang today After waiting 6 weeks I was told that the results were taking 8 weeks. As you can appreciate this is quite distressing and the wait appears to be getting longer
