This lady went to her GP, was diagnosed with diverticulitis and sent to hospital. She had a camera and an MRI scan which confirmed diverticulitis. She has been on treatment and was supposed to have been sent a follow-up appointment but nothing happened. Rang the consultant but found his secretary to be very rude who told her there was a long waiting list and that there was more than just her with the problem! Went back to GP who found out there is a 4 month waiting list, but lady in constant pain.
