Patients waiting for hospital appointments in Guernsey have told ITV News they are facing months of delays before they have been seen.
One man waiting on surgery with the Medical Specialist Group said he has been on their list for more than a year.
Luke Winch injured his knee playing football and should have seen a consultant within 8 weeks.
The Medical Specialist Group in Guernsey has apologised to patients who have experienced unusually long waiting times.
They say approximately 95% of appointments are within the 8 week contractual wait.
But "scarce theatre resources" have meant some delays in departments, particularly orthopaedic and gynaecology, MSG has said.
