"Back clinic wait time for 1st appointment"

About: Croydon University Hospital

After 20+ weeks, still waiting for 1st consultant-led appointment at back clinic. Why do patients have to go through an additional referral system (Cress/MCATS) when the GP wishes you to be seen by an orthopaedic expert i.e. an orthopaedics consultant?
