"24 and treated like a child"

About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

Anything else?

Had an appointment with a doctor instead saw a nurse. She told me my problem wasn't serious and shouldn't of gone. I had to see local gp 3 days later I had to see my gp because the nurse diagnosed me wrong and now I've no trust in this hospital. Took me 6 months to get an appointment due to waiting times to get seen and now I'm waiting to be referred to leeds for treatment which is about 4 month wait. So thankyou calderdale for wasting my time and also making me more ill then before.
