Six months and counting: Taranaki woman’s ‘very stressful’ wait for ultrasound
Taranaki woman Jamie Jeffreys has been trying to get an ultrasound since last October.
She has undiagnosed health problems and was referred to the Taranaki District Health Board (TDHB) by her doctor to try and figure out the problem.
Six months on, Jeffreys is still waiting for an appointment yet her pain and other symptoms are getting worse.
The wait has been ‘’very stressful’’, she said.
After the referral, Jeffreys waited two months before getting back in touch with her doctor, who confirmed it had definitely been sent in.
