"Making a complaint makes matters worse!"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Anything else?

I have recently had cause to make a complaint regarding my treatment at this hospital. The complaints procedure is a nightmare! They are even unable to get the correct treatment dates. I am still no further forward after 2 months. Just been told if i want to change consultant I have to start all over again!!MP I think.
