"Symptomatic of the NHS"

About: Warwick Hospital

I'm sorry I cannot recommend this Hpspital to anyone, I have seen various specialists at this hospital over the years. 14 years ago This hospital missdiagnosed my eye condition keratoconus saying there was nothing wrong with me othe rthen anxiety, they then compounded it just 2 years ago after my left eyes vision got to the point where all I can see is multiple ghosted images leaving me unable to read any print with that eye, or go out at night without mass glare and headaches. Again their specialists looked and said there was nothing wrong with my eyes. It was then seen by a high street optician that my cornea was completely mishaped due to keratoconus and he spotted this with a simple flahs light into my eye, the hospital could not see this with slit lamp exams multiple times. A subsequent complaint letter was ignored by the hospital. I am still at this hospital under other so called specialists who are no help at all., the latest being an endocrinologist who has replaced my previous one due to retirement. This latest endo was that useless that I have decided to not accept any further appointments.
