"Trouble organising referral"

About: Greater Manchester Trafford General Hospital / Dermatology

(as a relative),

My mother age 87 cannot handle her referral for a minor skin cancer and I tried to book her single choice choose-and-book (! ) service. They NEVER answer the phone or get back to me. I am about to travel abroad so need the appointment in the diary as I have to take her.

I am a retired GP! !
