"Ignorance"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

What upset me was we went in the the Consultant's room he didn't even look up to greet us or even acknowledge us leaving us feeling very uncomfortable. I was presumably reading the notes but it seemed like he had no idea because once he did speak still not greeting us in the normal way he kept asking for the same information that was in the notes right in front of him!. He was just plain ignorant and ill informed even with the information in front of him that's disgusting and beside that its rude not to acknowledge people ...

Hello, thanks for your feedback. Good patient communication is very important and I'm sorry to hear we fell short of our standards on this occasion. If you would like to contact our patient advice and liaison service on nlg-tr.pals@nhs.net we would be able to take some more details from you and look into this further. Many thanks, Sarah Mainprize
