In December 2012 I was told my daughter would need gromits and her adenoids out.I was told I would only be waiting 2 months. Still hadn't heard anything so I phoned up after a few months to be told she was on the waiting list and it will be in April. Knowing how badly the hospitals are at keeping appointments I phoned up the following month and was told again yes it will be in April.
Today I phoned up as still haven't heard anything to be told she will have to wait until may/june as they need a specialist aneasthetist as she's only 4. She has been 4 since the operartion was decided. I am very angry and upset as I feel my daughters development is suffering. This whole process regarding tests etc started last march 2012.
When I actually get through to the department I feel that I am being pasified. From reading other reviews I see that I am not the only one who is dissatisfied with the service.
