"Waiting forever to book an appointment"

About: Liverpool Womens Hospital

Well let me start, I am being followed at Hewitt Centre and in the middle of my IVF treatments, during a scan, the scan nurse found a fibroid that was/is growing into my uterus. My Doctor then suggested that was better to remove it, and so he did a referral letter to the Geneacology department. I waited for two weeks for someone to tell me something and then I decided to call the hospital for some news, they told me I was in a queue ( that's fine form me), however I have to wait for approximately a month for a consultation and then they will book my surgery. I don't think this is acceptable, I see the time running and I am getting older, to this time that I have to wait, I have to add the time for the recovery, and then I can continue my IVF treatment. It takes forever to book a 5 minute talk they call a consultation, to be treated poorly and condescension. I don't think waiting this time is acceptable in a country that wants to brags that gives their citizens a five star medical care quality.
