"Occupational health"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Tested positive for montoux test 16mm+ by occupational nurse in November 2014. She did not refer me forward to Queens chest clinic for further investigation. I have latent TB according to report. I am awaiting reference either from my GP or from the occupational health for now 3 months +. I have been ignored by NHS services by kicking me like a ball from GP to the occupational nurse. I don't know who is responsible for my reference.

Response from Queen's Hospital

Thank you for leaving your comment on NHS Choices. I am sorry at you have not been referred to the chest clinic at Queen’s. If you forward me your details I will investigate for you, it is not acceptable to feel like you don’t know what is happening next with your care. Please contact me via our PALS team on 01708 435 454 or email PALS@bhrhospitals.nhs.uk so I can look into this. Yours sincerely, Sarah Tedford Chief Operating Officer
