Not sure how helpful it is to assume everything you read is relevant to your case; I can see why the medical team want you to wait for the allocated appointment. Most outpatients departments will be closing down in the next few days until the new year, or at least existing on a skeleton staff so I am not sure you could get anything much earlier than 22nd January anyway?
Why are you worried about him being on HT for 3 months? The longer he is on it before RT, the better the outcome tends to be and 3 months would be the absolute minimum.
Chemo with curative RT is not approved by NICE and there is currently no trial for you to request referral to so you are not going to get it through any normal route. You may be lucky and find that when you do see the specialist, s/he is an adventurer and knows a way to do it but really, they are the experts and know better than any lay person.
'Early' in relation to chemo for prostate cancer does not mean 'early after diagnosis' ... it means 'not palliative' or 'not at end of life stage'
Personally, I am struggling with why you are not happy with the treatment plan. With locally advanced PCa, he is fortunate to be offered radiotherapy with curative intentions and I would be grabbing that with both hands.
