Consultant requested the doctor, after a wait of 3 months, I be retested after a positive p-anca blood test. Nurse took bloods and I rang for result to be told not done due to technical issues? Ok so queried and asked what was technical issues. After several calls to health centre over approx 2 weeks was told it would be done but I did not have to go to get blood taken again, they would use previous sample. Came back negative. Made app to see doctor to query situation who told me he himself stopped the test! Said he did not have to carry out anything consultant requested!? I felt so shocked, confused and let down sitting in his office being told this. Why would a supposedly caring professional do this? I'm still trying to get my head round this. I told him I felt that he did not care or believe that I was unwell. The outcome was that I told him that I would not be going privately as I had used up all my allowance on tests and so reluctantly he is going to refer me through NHS. Still can't believe his attitude.
