The NHS August 02, 2021, 04:39:06 pm What the hell is happening, Doncaster has an handfuls of covid patients compared to the peak. Can you get to see a consultant, can you hell. My Wife has two steel heart valves and has been told she needs to see a cardiologist. This was four months ago she hasn't heard a thing. She finally got to see a GP after a dozen attempts. The triage refused a live session many times saying there isn't any appointments. The GP has said he will chase the consultant appointment up but doesn't hold much hope. This despite him believing she has a serious heart condition. It's a really serious gripe about our GP service in Conisbrough it takes at least a hour to get through and then somewhere around eight hours later a triage will ring back. I myself have been waiting almost a year to see an optomologist for another series of eye injections. My July appointment has been cancelled and another made for late September. The fifth cancellation. My story is repeated many times on our town fb page. During my volunteer NHS work I see waiting rooms like ghost towns where once they were packed. We can't just blame buffon Boris. The management of the NHS is failing and using Covid as an excuse.
