"Endoscopic & Endoscopic Departments"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

I've had a on/off going problem with PR Bleeding since 2012. In 2013 having had a Endoscopy it was diagnosed that whilst I had some Polyps removed the rest was done to a few internal haemorrhoids. In the past 3 months not only have I had PR Bleeding but also leaking of faeces. I'm just a simple bus driver who gets paid weekly wages on an hourly contract and am now unable to fulfil my contracted duties to to being off so much. No one seems to understand this simple but important issue, if it is just haemorrhoids then surely I don't have to wait until the 21st July just to have another Colonscopy? But I do, and I know that after that procedure I'll be referred back to the consultant and only then shall my problem be rectified! "A lot of the consultant's are on holiday at the moment" That to mean means poor management and now affects not only my health but my job. Very disappointed to say the least. Why must a simple procedure take so long?
