I feel my referral to see a hospital consultant via DRSS was a total waste of time, energy and, more importantly, tax payers and my money! As has happened before, instead of ringing the service after receiving the letter and making the appointment, have just been told now they will forward my referral so that the hospital can send the appointment.
Surely it would have been far quicker and more straight forward for the GP to have gone direct to the hospital? ? When I pointed this out to the operator he mentioned that this way I did at least have a choice of hospital. However both of these were a 100 mile round trip. grrrrrr rant over.
