"Wait for replacement contraceptive implant"

I phoned the doctors at Lerwick Health Centre in early March regarding my implant expiring. I was put on a waiting list and finally received a letter to say my appointment would be two months later in May. I thought this was a ridiculous length of time to wait but did, then on the day I was phoned to say that the person doing it had phoned in sick and I would now have to wait until the 19th of June.
I understand that this is not an emergency procedure but considering when I originally had the implant put in I was registered at a health centre in Greenock and it took around three days from phoning to receiving the implant, I am baffled by the amount of time you have to wait!
