"Feb-up waiting"

About: Broadgreen Hospital

I was referred by my GP to see a Consultant @ Broadgreen Urology Centre in early April 2016. Despite numerous telephone calls by me and my GP, I am still waiting to be contacted now (August 10th). So much for my GP being concerned that they felt it necessary to refer me. When I was working a few years ago and could "afford" to pay privately - guess what - I was seen within the week. It might be reasonable to assume that the Consultants are too busy seeing Private Patients and are not bothered about NHS Patients. Not impressed!
