"Cannot deliver services"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

Chest clinic consultant says see them in 3 months hospital admin say no chance of appointments within that time frame. Need to continue medication which if taken long term is detrimental to health. When can we have hospitals run by clinicians not administrators?
