Found my breast lump around May and visited my GP who referred me to New Victoria. It's now October and I haven't had an appointment through yet.
Waiting is stressful enough without delays and the worry that I have been forgotten about. Spoke with GP receptionist as I was unable to reach hospital on number provided. She was helpful and was told that breast clinic never respond to voicemails, despite their telephone number nearly always being connected to voicemail. Apparently I should call every day and keep calling til I get through. I got through once in July and was told to call back in August. It's now October and I still haven't received my appointment.
