"Not being listened to."

About: Basildon University Hospital

This relates to my 9 year old daughter. She has a hand complaint being bullied and teased at school. Treatment has made the problem worse. Hospital refused to give her a follow up appointment. Been back to the doctors who has again had to refer back to the hospital but because she was discharged is now at the bottom of the pile. No one is listening to me. Did speak to the original consultants secretary to see if she could be fast tracked - no. Can I please remind you that this is a 9 year old girl who is being bullied!! I would like to speak to someone regarding this.
