"Breakdown in communication"
About: Wrightington Hospital Wrightington Hospital Wigan WN6 9EP

It's all said and done sitting exams after years of studying but in my personal opinion if you haven't got the communication skills or the interaction with your patient it all seems pointless. After my first visit to see the consultant I was left feeling extremely upset and embarrassed. I found him very condescending, patronising, and belittling and the final straw was when he made a comment about larger ladies will inevitably have trouble with their hips- I felt whether intentionally or unintentionally that this was directed at me and I am neither obese or underweight! He laughed at my answers and every question he asked he interrupted me with another, he was very bad mannered. Otherwise the hospital was impressive and all the other staff were amazing and helpful but I've seen my GP asking not to return to Wrightington.
