I have had problems along with my wife getting reasonable early appointments myself. I suffer with a few serious problems, pituitary tumor/empty sella syndrome. Recently I have had to wait on two occasions 5 weeks to get an appointment. One of these was for me a serious problem and having to wait 5 weeks to see what was happening was disgusting. I was urinating blood and large blood clots which to me should be enough to see a doctor. I want to talk to a doctor and was refused. I was told to make an appointment which was 5 weeks regardless of cuts and other problems. Patients with what I thought was serious should have the right to see someone as we are constantly being told not to go to hospital.
