"Access to podiatry service"

End of Jun 2015, I got a self referral form to fill in from my doctor for a request for podiatry service in Edinburgh. Filled in, ticked the boxes, add the information required and sent it off to the address provided on the form.
5 weeks later I called the service to find out when they would see me and found they had no knowledge of the request and the clinic I had sent it to - as written on the form - had been closed for 2 years! ! ! I had been given an outdated form.
I am know waiting for a new form and was told it would probably be 10 weeks before I would see someone for an initial assessment.
There must be a more efficient way to make an appointment......
Feeling let down by the service to be honest!
