"Coposcopy appointment"

About: Orpington Hospital

I attended the Coposcopy Clinic in May 2013 after a referral for an abnormal smear test. I was extremely anxious and nervous, the doctor and two nurses made me feel at ease. I was told I would receive the biopsy results within 4/6 weeks. 8 long weeks later after numerous phone calls I was informed that I needed to come back for (Loop treatment )an appointment was arranged 13th August .Upon my return from holiday,two days prior to my appt I returned home to find a letter informing that my appt had been changed to 16th Sept with no explanation as to why. As you can imagine my anger and frustration, I have waited long enough for the first appt and now to be told it has been cancelled.This is a worrying time in itself, I just want this procedure over and done with as soon as possible, I am now considering going privately to have it over and done with.
