"Very disappointing"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I attended the clinic in April, and my rheumy wanted to see me 3 months after for another appointment. I left it for approximately 4/5 months and contacted them, to be told that there were no appointments until January 2016!!! 9 months after I should have been seen. Contacted pals who have managed to get me in in December. Still not very good when I'm in agony and I'm waiting on more tests for lupus. My GP can only increase my medication so much as instructed by my rheumy, but then what? Just not good enough
