After visiting the eye clinic many times it's fair to say let's I am dissatisfied with the appointment system.In the past I never received appointments I should have. After a lot of hassle I finally received one for decades 2012(should have been june2012).I then got a cancellation letter! I eventually got an appointment for 20/7/13. Before then I had to go to eye casualty due to floaters. They seemed shocked I hadn't been seen in so long. They referee me to ophthalmology for laser.They couldn't do laser due to hemorhaging.I have had 2 further appointments to see if the bleeding eased and was told I may need an operation.I had an appointment today 1/10/13 .I got to LRI but felt ill so my husband went to the clinic to cancel.They made another appointment for 22/4/14 Which is too far away as the consultant wanted to see me within2/3months which was October 2013. Ihave had a right job ringing around the booking clinic who were no help so I rang pils who said they'd email the clinic to contact me which they did but we're no help.They said to contact my doctors to try to hurry my appointment up.I have done this so hope I get an appointment as early as possible.It seems a lot of messing about when the consultant wants to see you sooner. Also the attitude of the receptionists can be rude,She told my husband she was doing him a favorite giving me an appointment! Anyway I really hope I hear soon as I still have floaters which I were told needed sorting out and it's worrying yours Mrs T L Elliott.
