Any , Davier?

I’ve been waiting 8 weeks and counting now for an ultrasound after I went to my GP with a lump. I’m going to ring the hospital tomorrow. I know they’re probably extremely busy but it’s not something I really want to just sit and wait around for.

As for going private, I considered it already but in the event I need treatment I’d probably still have to go via the NHS anyway.

From my experience its not been that much quicker. I had to get my gp to do a referral snd then had to see a gastro consultant who then decided that I should get CT scan. Fortunately they did my scan as an urgent one due to some of my , so I only waited a week after seeing the consultant, so it took about 4 weeks in total. I hadn’t ct scan today and takes week for results, although I’m expecting bad news so I think I will get a call sooner than that. 
good luck
