"Had better health care living I'm London"

About: Manor Hospital

Having moved back to the area, my GP has referred me onto the gastroenterology department at the Manor. My condition is chronic and requires regular consultation. Having originally been told the waiting list was 18 weeks, I was advised today it is between 6 and 9 months. Given the circumstances of my illness, I think this is appalling and it will mean it will be in excess of a year by the time I get to see a consultant again. I had better access to health care living in London!
