"I am reassured but six weeks is a long time to wait"

About: Barnsley Hospital / Maxillo-Facial surgery

(as the patient),

I saw four doctors before I managed to get a hospital appointment, and none of them were particularly helpful. After seeing a doctor at the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Unit at Barnsley Hospital I felt much more reassured. Everything was explained well and I feel like I was actually listened to.

The only thing I would have a problem with is I have to wait another 6 weeks before I can get this problem sorted. I understand there are waiting lists and a lot of people, but for a problem that often means I struggle to eat and already had for 3 weeks, it is a long time to wait.
