About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Although the staff and doctors are all very kind, I had a problem spotted on an ultrasound scan back in Jan / Feb this year. It is not an area for maxillofacial so they advised they would write to my GP - I checked last week and still my GP has not been informed - I hope therefore its not serious! When there are potential other problems found and people are suffering surely the department should make sure the relevant medical personnel are notified promptly, I rather think that the follow up lets the doctors down in this dept
