People who are in pain should be treated and not be made to wait.
I have lupus which is a chronic long term illness. My sister died of this disease. I have a rash which has gotten worse over time It is extremely sore and is keeping me awake at night. My GP will not give me any treatment until i ihave seen a dermatologist. I have waited six weeks to see a dermatologist only to have my appointment cancelled because the dermatologist left. I now have to wait to be referred to another dermatologist. This is intolerable. I have even turned up at A&E and they would not treat me although they will treat drunks.
