I initially had a contrast CT , the staff were amazing, then I was referred to see Mr Ian Currie, he did not acknowledge me, he wondered why I was there, I told him I’d been referred to him , I named the person that referred me, and he asked what was wrong, so I told him I’d had a scan result which identified a large malignant mass, a smaller mass that could be malignant and what appeared to be secondary metastasis in 2 different locations on my spine.
He said he didn’t have access to my CT scan , nor a referral letter , and that a
Blood test had not been done, I told him I had been cc’d into the correspondence and I had copies of both, he didn’t even look up from his desk.
I informed him the blood test had been done and it was ok.He said I needed to have another and gave the paperwork to my husband.
Throughout the consultation he directed all questions re my condition and treatment and his advice to my husband , and he didn’t make eye contact with me.
When we left he didn’t say a word to us, not even good bye. He started dictating a referral to an oncologist.
Needless to say I did not feel like I was well informed and I didn’t feel he had any interest in my welfare or treatment.
I would refuse to see this Consultant again
