"On a waiting list for a waiting list!"

About: Hinchingbrooke Hospital / Respiratory medicine

(as the patient),

re. e referral appointment. thoracic medicine service. I have been put on a waiting list to be given an appointment to get on a waiting list.

I can't help but wonder if this has been done to fiddle the waiting times. I was told on the phone that appointments dept hope to be able to phone me up this year and arrange an appointment.

How many other people are on a waiting list to get on a waiting list at this hospital?
