"Initial appointment"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

Anything else?

We went as a couple when called I was told there was not enough room for me to go with partner for general information but could come in after the procedure to be there for outcome Unfortunately when the doctor came to inform partner of outcome they felt unable to have me there as room small and felt doctor was busy Partner was in shock from info given so asked no questions told he will be seen in7 - 10 days with outcome of biopsies We are left just waiting no support info on internet have left us with no hope and distraught What a shame no thought is given to patient and partner during this wait I have lots of questions
