"Confused and disappointed "

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Had two appointments at for IVF pre-treatments and on both occasions, the consultant was not available to take my appointment. As such I have had two different registrars on each occasion, which has created a lack of consistency. The direct results of this is I have been given conflicting information which will now risk delaying my treatment further. I have tried to contact the consultant directly and in the end, gave a written account of my concerns via the secretary by email. I am still yet to hear back. I want to know the way forward as I am very confused and disappointed.
