Waiting times for appointments

We are happy to report that we have been able to decrease our waiting times and are looking to expand our capacity as of 1 November, so we expect a further decrease. More detailed predictions are difficult to make, because demand for our services remains at an unprecedented level. We will continue to expand our staff capacity to meet this demand.
