"Removal of granuloma at Northern General"

About: Northern General Hospital / Plastic surgery

(as the patient),

1. Immediate referral by GP to local hospital to have 'growth' removed from base of right hand (plastic surgery required).

2. A lot of bleeding (during the waiting for an appointment by the hospital).

3. After one session of bleeding, I waqs sent to A&E by my GP.

4. Long waiting time in A&E (4 hours) then still waited for appointment to see the specialist (total of 3 weeks from beginning to end).

5. After 3 weeks, I saw the plastic surgeon. Everything after that was excellent. I was treated with courtesy and respect by Mr Dunkin and the pre-op nurse. Well done NHS.
