Last year i went to see a private neuro speacialist, he wrote back to my GP politely asking for confirmation that she agrees for me to go ahead with him for further tests on the NHS list.
If i had not phoned my Neuro 4 months
later nothing would have happened as my doctor had filed the letter giving no responce.
I then asked my doctor if we could check my Hormone levels , she agreed but said wait untill you have finished with the MRI results.
So i wait for my MRI 2 months and get the results 1 month. = 3 months
I go back to my doctor and ask for the hormone test, i had my blood taken and asked me to come back in 6 months. I ask why?...reason..because you have to take 1 blood to present the second against and they need to be 6 months inbetween
why didnt we take the first blood while i was waiting on the MRI/neuro? 3 months wasted
In Septemebr of this year i had to go for further scans of internal organs for an operation, turns out the operation needs to be done under a different department, 3 months
ago a letter was written to the second dept asking for my case to be viewed and my operation put on thier waiting list.
I rang my Speacialist today whos secratary has already packed up for the holidays , to find that the letter that was sent 3 months ago has never had a responce???
all in all 4+3+3 = 1 year of my life wasted on waiting times, through sheer lack of communication and lack of commonsence.
If The government want to help sick people back to work then they better start to act like it
I will not be on the internet after the end of January 2009,
so will not be around as much as usuall.
Anyone who wants to email me still go ahead but i won't be checking daily, more like weekly up the library.
