Transcription of letters: Those from appointments from w/c 2 April 2018.

Endocrine: Admin letters dictated w/c 21 May 2018, and clinics w/c 7 May 2018 are now being transcribed.

First appointments being booked: Referrals made in mid-June 2017 are now being given appointments, the timing of which will be dependent on individual care pathways.
