PATIENTS COULD WAIT A MONTH TO SEE DOCTOR
Man had to wait four weeks for appointment at South Beach Surgery
PATIENTS attending General Practitioners in the Three Towns have complained at having to wait up to a month to see a doctor.
One resident who uses South Beach Surgery, on South Crescent Road in Ardrossan, said he has been told he will have to wait a month for a routine appointment, despite similar problems with waiting times raised two years ago.
He said: "The situation is now as bad as it has ever been - one month for an appointment as I discovered the other morning when I tried to get an appointment to get signed off from my work due to stress and deteriorating health.
