  • it took us 3 months to get an emergancy appointment for a scan from a pead, and even longer for a referall about davids food, we were told wed have one by the time he was 3 months old, well hes 3 months now lol, and were seen in a and e at 5 weeks
  • it took us 1 and a half week to see a peadiatrition,
  • yea i think it took us probably about a month if that. that was because my son had eczema and thought he could be milk tolerance and now about 5months down the line they are gonna take blood from him to see if he is or not plus now hes losing weight.
  • we were refered when ollie got his 3rd bout of tonsilitis, and that was about 6 weeks ago... they rang us up to arrange it while we were in hospital, which i think helped to speed things along.
    We were told it could take up to 3/4 months to get an app with a specialist.

  • Isaacs referal came through within two weeks. x
  • Both times that Ashton has been referred it was really quick! The first time we went the following day after seeing the helth visitor and the second time we went straight in to see the pediatricion after she came off the phone from the hospital! I would speak to them again and ask them to chase it! xxxxx
