Hi all, just thought I,d brighten a dull day with a dull bit of info, Last year I had my Rhuemy appointment cancelled and re scheduled 5 times making a 6month appointment a 1 year appointment,one appointment was changed twice ( by 2 letters ) on the same day. so I decided I would contact the hospital PALS dept to complain , I then had it re scheduled twice more and eventually landed up with an appointment 1month BEFORE the original one that was cancelled !!!.Yesterday I recieved my 2nd cancellation for this year and re scheduled , making my 6month appointment ( at the moment ,as it could easily be cancelled again ) a 11month appointment. Luckily I do have the option to ring the clinic nurse if I needed to ,and no doubt I would be "dealt with" as required. However it can be most disconcerting to be " messed about " in this way. The irony of it is , that all the letters state ( they are pre printed ) that should the patient cancel an appointment more than once, you would need to go back to your GP to start all over again.I did say it was dull , but I suppose you do have to laugh.
