Those of you who have had a referral, How long did it take before you heard from the specialist /got a letter? And how long after that was your appointment?
My GP said she’d refer me, but I haven’t heard anything yet. I just wondered how’s long to expect.
Thank you 😊

Mine took 2 weeks for the apt date to come through and my apt is at the end of August

When my GP did the referral she printed out a separate letter for me to keep with a reference code etc on it so if it took longer than 2 weeks I could ring up and chase them.

I think it was two or four weeks? Started some drugs right away (anti-thyroid and propranolol) had a scan and some more blood tests then the endocrinologist went over the results.

Thank you all for your replies. It’s been nearly two weeks since my appointment. So I’ll wait for another week or so, and then follow up.
