"Appointments dept is a joke!!!"
About: Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Birmingham B31 2AP
I was internally referred by a consultant at ROH in Sept 2013 to one of their spinal consultants. I rang their appointments line numerous times chasing an appointment and on many occasions was told they would call me back. I even asked to speak to a manager thinking they would take note. Needless to say, none of them, including the manager, returned my call and each time gave me excuses - even trying to blame my GP who had nothing to do with it! After writing a long letter of complaint, I eventually received an appointment in March. I was informed by letter that they would fully respond to my complaints within 35 working days. I was then informed by email, after complaining about other issues, that I would receive a response by 18 April. Needless to say, 35 working days expired approx. 1 week ago as has 18 April and I am still awaiting to hear from them! It seems the only way to get any response is to complain on this site!
