Is there anyway to access waiting times?

Have been trying to make contact regarding my son, and the paedriatrics service at his last appoint in January, the report said a follow appointment in 6 months (June) and have not yet heard anything. This was with Dr Ahmed, before that was Dr Kozen.

In the last few months, we have seen different speech people, and occupational therapist.

He is due to start reception school in a few weeks, and really need to get every possible plan in place to help with his learning development and suspected autism.

We are still waiting for the dr's to go to a committee to get him statmented or properly diagnosed. it seems like everyone else is being seen except us. it's been 3 years now.

Dear David

I understand that Maria Tanner, who manages the service, has contacted you this morning and will call you later today, once she has spoken to the paediatrician about your son's appointment.

Kind regards

I have been trying to get in contact regarding my son and waiting times. It would be good to know at how long we have to wait before getting an appointment. For my sons interest this needs to speed up. Lack of communication causes anxiety and stress.

Dear Lucy

I'm sorry that you have been unable to contact the Community Paediatric Service.

Alison has called you with the appointment date and one of our administrators will call you should an earlier appointment become available.

Kind regards

Maria Tanner

Could you publish online the new pathways for continence help/how you can access the continence clinic? Now the Kidbrook service has stopped. thank you.

I've been waiting for someone to call me with an appointment for 2 weeks. I have chased the SPA team several times who have been emailing the paediatric team but I have not heard back!

Dear Nursev

Please accept our apologies for the delay, I understand the team has now been in contact with yourself and an appointment has been arranged.

I've been trying to get an appointment for my son online. but there is no choice, only by phone, and the phone line is still busy all day, it's 3 in the afternoon and still occupied.

We have spoken with Fabio, the service he is requesting is not provided by Oxleas and relates to another hospital.

We have provided him with information to assist him in obtaining the service from them.
