"choose and book"

About: NHS Stoke on Trent CCG

(as the patient),

where is the choice when you go to your GP who refers you to a specialist?

The letter you receive gives you a choice of 4 hospitals but when you look at the options only one hospital has an available appointment.

To add insult to injury the only available appointment is at 15: 00 so I can not attend due to having to be there as my son comes out of school.

It seems they are proud that 83% of their patients start treatment within 18 weeks.

As this is a respiratory specialist (a significant part of living) how can this be good, what about the other 17% did they die waiting
