"I didn't receive a follow up appointment"
Posted by Jodie Anne (as ),
In mid September I had a procedure at Chesterfield Royal Hospital under the Gynecology Dept. quite a run of the mill hernia. In hospital I was looked after & plenty of info for the 2 days I was in & I was told I would get a 4 week follow up appointment. When I came out I had 4 weeks off work, no follow up appointment came, so I rang & an appointment was made the beginning of December.
Last week my stitches which had not dissolved started to stick in me & cause bleeding, I rang Gyne Dept & was told to get in touch with my GP, GP said they couldn't do anything about internal stitches, so where did that leave me, GP receptionist rang Gyne Dept. & was told by the same rude person that they must sort it out for me which they very kindly took the stitch out which was causing me the problem. I know it's only a minor complaint but if I had the 4 week appointment as told this upset would not have arisen.
