I should have been to see the specialist of my lung disease, for the first time on Tuesday 9th Feb. I had geared myself up, wrote down the questions I wanted answers to and prepared myself for some of the answers ..... At least. I sat waiting from 7am with my coat on as it wasn't my usual hospital but one about 30 miles away and it wasn't the same ambulance service either, so I thought it best to be ready early.
My appointment time was 11am, when it got to 9.45am I rang the hospital to say that I hadn't been picked up and asked what time did they estimate. I was told
" Oh it doesn't look like they booked your transport and it's too late now for it to be sorted. " No apology at all. I had waited 6mths for this appointment and feel devastated and now my mood has spiralled down, so far that I don't feel I can take anymore, I'm sat in tears most of the time and when I'm cried out my thoughts are very dark.
So Sheffield Northern General you are named and shamed. Depressed x
