For goodness sake, this is proving to be more challenging than my degree. As I have said before I was referred to the haematologist on 12th November and the hospital website quotes a 2 week waiting list for appointments. Yesterday I rang them (5th time it has been chased up) and was told a letter had been sent to my gp. I was in the surgery this morning with my son and asked the receptionist if she could check my notes. She said there was a letter from the haematologist but it was too long for her to read and she did not understand it. I asked for a tel consultation with the GP to discuss it and she offered me 9th March which is too far away for me. She said had it been an appointment then the hospital would have written to me or the GP secretary would have contacted me to tell me to come and collect the appointment letter. I have just had a call stating the GP wants to discuss it with me but the earliest tel appt is 7 March, which I have accepted. From this I can only assume the haematologist has refused to see me. Had enough of all this nonsense now (trying to use non offensive language). I did fill in a patient survey while there which was more bout today's appt with my son which I could not fault, but it dd ask how can the surgery improve so I said GPs can read guidelines and receive training in pa and B12d. I may as well give up seeing medical professionals about this condition and just continue to treat myself with vitamins and injections. As for finding a cause that is clearly not going to happen
