"Long long wait for what tho gp could do in minutes"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary / Ear, Nose and Throat

I had waited for 6 months for a follow up appointment. When it came through I Was hoping we could move forward as I've not had any progress in two years. Instead of moving forward, I was sent down the corridor to have blood taken, which I could have had done in six days with my gp!!! That was April, I'm still waiting for results and have my next appt isn't until October. Very slow very disappointing
