He was referred to an allergist at a hospital but the staff there gave him the wrong information and he waited for an appointment that never materialized. And because he has private insurance and doesn't need to go through the NHS, it actually made things more complicated at that hospital. Needless to say, he asked for another referral, which he finally got.

We really need to advocate for ourselves and our family members. I'm glad that he kept asking until he got his appointment. In Canada here, the staff are so everworked that mistakes and oversights can and do happen.
