"Diagnostic Waiting Time Very Poor"

About: Dorset County Hospital

Elderly mother with severe leg ulcers.. Ultra Sound 17th April .. apparently results inconclusive .. CT scan not until 10th June !! ..well in excess of time scale suggested on this site. Meanwhile patient in constant pain and mobility deteriorating despite excellent attention from GP practice nurses. Treatment options I hope will not take as long.
