My daughter was first seen in February 2013 then put on medication on secondary 2013. She was supposed to see consultant in 6 months come May of 2014. No appoint her GP phoned and was told an appointment had been sent out for March which my daughter never received, they gave another appointment for the mid June on the afternoon of and the next day she received a phone call saying they had made a mistake that the consultant was on holiday, now the next appointment is for late August.
That takes us nearly up to a year since she has seen the consultant. In the meantime the medication she was given haven't been working and she has. been in severe pain all this time and absent from work since beginning of May and now very depressed because of her situation. We are totally disgusted over the whole situation.
