"Still waiting........"

About: Derriford Hospital

What I liked

GP referred me very quickly

What could be improved

I was offered other hospitals who has appointments but these were too far away so I requested to go on the waiting list for Derriford Hospital as that is my local hospital. This was a month ago - I have no idea how long the waiting list is and was not given any guidelines as to how long this would be although I was told it could be as quick as two weeks - not the case. How do I go about finding how long the wait will be? My condition is painful and getting worse and I am not sure I can wait months for an appointment!
