"Worst department in the hospital"

About: Conquest Hospital

It has been three years since I was referred. In this time I've haD a flexible sigmoidoscopy, mre, lots of blood work, gynaecological exams and faecal testing. Yet I'm still waiting for any diagnosis or treatment plan. I'm also waiting to see the same doctor more than once. I can never get hold of the secretaries and the doctors never know what they are doing or what has previously happened I have been left in agony and unable to work. I'm at a loss.
