On Jan 16, I posted WRT a visit to the Doc's, about my knees. (post #22) Today I received an appointment notification for an Orthopaedic Consultant on the 25th Feb. (next week) This must be something of a record - just over a month wait - and a very welcome improvement in waiting times at my local hospital. Mind you, they never were as bad as some other parts of the country. I know to my cost how long things can take in the South-east, even for a Doctors' visit. I remember my landlady in Sunbury having to wait 2 weeks to see her GP - I was quite shocked.
I'll let everyone know how things go next week.
