Is this for urgent or routine?
I'm talking about routine appointments.
Though not sure whether an urgent referral really speeds anything up.
The only ones seen quickly are the 2 week rule.
And routine breast referrals are seen in 2 weeks here.

My GP referred me for an autism assessment. I had to wait a few weeks for the local mental health people to 'triage' me. They agreed with the GP and referred me on. Their letter they sent said I would have to wait 41 months! In other words, nearly 3.5 years.

That 2 week rule is that for any suspected cancer or mainly breast / bowel?
What about urgent cardiology I wonder
Yes in NHS Scotland anyway any lump bump
is a 48 hours GP contact and 2 weeks for specialist clinic.
My dam was seen in 24 hours by her GP and 6 days by breast specialist, outstanding care since then.
