I suppose you have not forgotten how to wait at
table, and clean plate, and the rest of it, in that time?
As part of this initiative patients who were facing a long wait at
their local hospital were offered treatment at an alternative hospital - and many took advantage of this opportunity.
They even wait at
the mouths of tombs, when all evidence suggests that it is time to give up.
at Abergavenny's Nevill Hall, patients with back pain wait at
least 22 weeks to be seen - but if they're sent to Llandough by their GP they'll be waiting more than two years patients waiting for knee replacement operations in North Wales have to wait more than two years for their first outpatient appointment - but if you live in Gwent you could be waiting for up to three-anda-half years patients needing brain surgery could be seen in as little time as nine weeks if they're with Bro Taf Health Authority, but if they're with Iechyd Morgannwg they'll be waiting at least 39 weeks.
Rather than endure a six-hour wait at the clinic, Bretz fears some people may wait until their affliction reaches a critical stage before seeking treatment.
