"Waiting... and Waiting... and Waiting...."

About: Yeovil District Hospital

Have been waiting now for 10 months to have a wisdom tooth extracted, which the last dentist exposed the nerve in fully, so I am in constant pain and discomfort. Still no sign of actually getting an appointment, and no communication from the hospital unless I call them, and find out its somewhere else waiting for a decision. And this is in part due to the fact I waited for the first 8 months for the referral to have it surgically removed, for them to try to take it out under local anaesthetic anyway despite being informed how local anaesthetic doesn't work well for me, so now I'm back at the back of the queue suffering more because of someones screwup.

The somerset dental partnership is a complete and utter shambles!!
