"Cannot get through! Waiting 10 weeks for results!!"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Been trying to call for days and nobody ever answers and the voicemail facility is full. I was diagnosed with abnormal cells over 18 months ago and am waiting on teh results of a 2nd smear test - is been 10 weeks and counting. I called after week 5 and they advised there was nobody to type up the results which is why they were behind. I am absolutley shocked and disgusted by this and its no wonder people dont catch cancer until the later stages if this is how long it takes!!!
