Can you tell me why l have been discharged from 3 waiting list since during COVID.
I have had my rheumatologist check up has been cancelled as l have waited over 18 months for a follow up appointment.
Then my respiratory clinic 6 month appointment never arrived so was discharged that was at least 18 month ago.
The next one was my 3 month follow up appointment was also discharged.
l know it has been a pressing time with COVID but it is wrong to discharge waiting list patients without being seen first as their situation may have changed.
It seems to me that to restart waiting lists you just discharge people who have been waiting a long time for follow up appointments don’t matter anymore.
l know l can go and see my GP and he will refer me but what about patients who don’t understand they can do that which is shocking.
