Denmark Hill, London, England, SE5 9RS
4 hours waiting for a 10am appointment in fracture clinic, not enough seats for all the patients in the crowded, dirty waiting room. Nothing for children (to entertain them while they wait). So I decided to go private at kings where the Consultant failed to show up to one meeting and surgery was cancelled at the last minute one day.
I was seen in Neurology A&E via ambulance and all major illness etc. excluded via immediate tests. All staff were very patient and efficient and I was discharged the following day with more tests booked. These have been done with a final consultation by the excellent Mr Mahdi-Rogers, reviewed separately. His and my only concern was the long period between my last test and the final consulant review, for which he could not offer an explanation but for which he apologised.
Excellent care received from Dr Benjamin Whitelaw. He is always extremely polite and always involves me in decision making. However, he always informs me about my condition and advises me on the best course of action.
Attended a and e with classic brain tumour symptoms. The doctor i saw, Katherine Tully, claimed there was nothing wrong, no emergency and I should go home. I went to a different hospital and was found to have a brain tumour. On the note she sent my NHS GP, she got my age wrong by 12 years and claimed I had attended a and e for a "headache" - it doesn't even sound plausible.
