About: Trafford General Hospital

I was reffered in May by my GP for dermatology review. I have since been waiting for a return call for the message I left on there answer phone as instructed. Finally managed to speak someone on 4th August, they apologised for lose of refferal and asked me to ring back again on the evening of the 5th August and hopefully they could offer me an appointment. It's now the 7th August and I have not been able to speak to anyone and left messages. So frustrated. I have not found this an easy process
