"Long wait for wisdom tooth extraction"

About: HMP Stocken / Primary care

(as the patient),

I went to see the dentist about toothache. It took four weeks to get to see him and he said there was nothing he could do so he referred me to the hospital at Peterborough.

So while I was waiting for the hospital I was popping paracetamol like there was no tomorrow and finally, fifteen and a half weeks later I went to the hospital to have my wisdom tooth out which was all good and there was no more pain.

The only downfall about healthcare is you're always playing the waiting game.
