Bit of advise Sue.
Ring up Consultants secretary and ask how far up the list as its 2 years
Ask to be put on cancelation list
Give your GP to ring hospital and ask how much longer

It was consultant's secretary that told me! As for my GP, his response at my question was to wave his hand at me and say 'I dont want to know, contact your MP or MLA. There's nothing I can do'! Shocked

I did that too and got the usual blurb - 'we are working hard (yeh, right!) to fix the problem of waiting lists - it's all the other side's fault - ya-de-ya, blah, blah ...'

If you know your Consultants name go to appointments and ask how far your up the list and ask for a cancelation.
As for your GP that's disgusting try a 2nd opinion

Might try again on Monday. That GP is the best of the three! Our cats get better treatment. Wasn't always this bad, they used to be great.

Laughing Our Minister came out to see mum this afternoon, so I had to give the house a bit of a tidy up this morning (it was a bit of a pigsty!) so I didn't get out into the garden 'til gone 11. Still I made up for it, I planted out the remaining Antrim Castle plants and tidied up some pots. I have been quite ruthless and got rid of a lot of plants from the 'last chance saloon' - I did warn them - buck up your ideas or you are out of here. Things look a lot less cluttered.

Beetroot is starting to grow and carrots just showing. The burdock I sowed last year is growing well. I just need to start looking for recipes to use it or I am going to be drinking dandelion and burdock for the rest of the year! I bought some broccoli, sprouts and red cabbage plants a few weeks ago. They are all doing well and I am hoping the butterfly netting I got will stop them being chomped by cabbage whites this year. Very Happy

Well, this morning I thought I would not be able to get into the garden today. But the afternoon really brightened up and Dave and I got the new water feature up and running. It still needs a few tweaks, but I am really happy with the transformation of a scruffy part of the garden.

The steel mesh was an off cut of a security fence that was lying around the yard at BMG. The mesh we had gone to look at turned out not to be strong enough and when we asked what they wanted for the waste piece they said 'take it' - well we had just ordered a load of timber! Very Happy

I finally got my Japanese lantern. I saw one at a garden centre when we were away last month. I climbed into the display and found a very old, tatty price label saying 125.00. I figured that as it appeared to have been there some time, I might be able to haggle the price. Well the guy comes over and climbs into the display, looks at the label and says 25.00! I'm seldom speechless, but just managed 'Waa?' He said 'well it has come down, it was 75.00.' Who was I to argue?

The pump is one from the old pond. Oh, and the bowl was half price too! So the garden has cost us very little.

It all looks well though. Dave put in a lot of hard work.
