"Waiting for gastroenterologist"

After being admitted to the Victoria hospital last August with suspected appendicitis, I was given two ultrasounds and sent home after a three night stay. The pain has continued intermittently since then. I waited over 6 months to see a gastroenterologist through medinet (who Nhs Fife have now transferred my care to), and I am now waiting again for a MRI scan and review appointment. NHS Fife is clearly overstretched...why are there not more gastroenterologists and more follow through for patients instead of me having to chase up at every stage?
