What you describe is potentially quite serious and must be investigated without further delay.  Asking you to wait another 6 weeks is not acceptable.  You don’t need a lung function test.  You need a doctor’s examination and a chest X-ray for starters and then whatever additional testing is needed to determine, with reasonable certainty, the source of this bleeding.  It could be coming from just about anywhere in your respiratory tract.

This is serious stuff and I urge you to seek medical assistance immediately.

Good luck
