"Waiting times"

About: Crosshouse Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was sent for a pelvic ultrasound in august and received a letter yesterday for follow up appointment on the 16th december. Is it normal to wait as long?

Dear worrier,

I can only make a few presumptions based on so little information but I do agree this seems a long time to wait. Is the follow-up a clinic appointment? Will you get the results then? (That would be too long to wait for them). I would like to look into it for you. If you would like that, please call me on 01563 826222 or email me at Eunice.goodwin@aapct.scot.nhs.uk

Best wishes
