"Neurology outpatients"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

I attended The outpatient epilepsy clinic to review my medication.I had an appointment for 1045 and wasn't seen until 1130 . Although we had a long time to wait, the visit to the doctor was well worth the time. The doctor was wonderful so thoughtful kind and very caring attitude to how I was coping with my tablet reduction. Nothing was too much trouble I could ask any question and the doctor gave me the confidence to continue to manage this myself with help of epilepsy nurses I was even wished a safe journey home. The doctor is a great credit to the department
