I went to Bath on the 31st of March to see my consultant, I have strong sjogrens symptoms
so the consultant decided to send me for a lip biopsy.
Shortly after my appointment a copy of the letter sent to my Gp arrived, it stated that the referral for the biopsy was already underway.
Yesterday I received another letter from Bath asking my local hospital to book me an appointment for the biopsy, but in the first letter it was saying this was already underway !
It had taken them ' five weeks ' to put a couple of sentences together yet I had been led to believe it was all underway, I was awaiting my appointment to arrive.
I rang my consultant's secretary to ask why it had taken them so long to send a letter to the relevant department, all I got was a sorry........this is not good enough when I am so poorly I told her.
It was only a couple of weeks back that I had emailed my consultant to tell her of my ailing health due to my having multiple conditions.
After threatening to speak with the patient liaison officer she said she would put me through to the consultant as I was obviously very unhappy.......to right I was.
The consultant came on the phone ! ' yet again another sorry ' as I tried to explain how poorly I am & I didn't feel I was any closer to getting help with my awful symptoms.
In a short phone call I was now being admitted ' this Monday the 12th ' for a stay over night so that I can see the Professor.........well there's a result ! ! !
Today another letter arrived with an appointment for this Friday for further testing.......why this cant be done whilst I am admitted I do not know seeing as I am not that local........that would make life to easy.
The letter was typed & posted all on the same day ! ' what a surprise '. Jillymo
