Last Thursday (that's a week ago) I saw my GP about the lack of progress I consider I am making now; she agreed that I should be making quicker progress and further agreed to refer me back to my consultant urgently as, quite understandably, what's going on with my hip is outwith the range of issues a GP could reasonably be expected to deal with and she was concerned about my walking. So, in those circumstances, is it reasonable to expect that a week later a letter of referral would have been sent - well they do fax them? I already have a consultant so it isn't as if she has to find one for me. If I make my own private (at cost to me) appointment to see the same consultant the process is that I have to produce a letter of referral so the GP is the critical path.
The simple situation is that a week later, despite pressure from me earlier in the week, nothing has happened and the letter of referral has not been written and therefore not sent to the appropriate department within Northampton General Hospital (NGH). I really did think she was doing good things for me but I must say I am extremely disappointed given nothing has been done yet. Is that a reasonable view to take I wonder?
