"I wish they had examined my son when I brought it to their attention"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Children's services

(as a parent/guardian),

Recently my son has had a problem weeing. He has had appointments with pediatricians. It had been a problem for a while (a year) but was told that we needed to wait a few more months.

A few days after the appointment my son was diagnosed with a high temperature and sever urine infection and infected foreskin. I feel that they didn’t listen to me so well this time. I feel my son does need an operation, it’s a nightmare trying to potty train him.

Now I have to wait another few months to see what will happen. I wish they had examined my son when I brought it to their attention. They were a bit busy the day I took my son for his appointment so think it was all a bit rushed.
