7 month delay in appointment - comment added Oct 17

Anonymous last visited this Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust in July 2017

Anything else?

I was due to have an MRI and checkup in Sept 2017 following a craniotomy in Feb 2016. I have been sent an appointment for April 2018, 7 months past when it should happen. I am transferring in from private where scans are bad enough but now I cant even get a timely appointment. I have a rare genetic disease making me prone to cancer and currently have 2 types, and in three years I have had so much medically go wrong. 7 months delay in an appointment is appalling and I am sure not in NICE guidelines.
