Preparing patients for the long wait

Comment

Current routine waits in Glasgow approx 42 weeks for routine gastro or respiratory new outpatient appointments. 6 months for spirometry, 4-6 months for physio in my area, 4-6 months for a routine endoscopy. At the point of referral I direct all patients to complain to the health board and their msp as soon as they miss the waiting time target.
