I came?h a pomp in my breast. Tahe consultalnt sad there was a lump in a each breast. They hadn't even found the big one that I knew about. I tried to ask them, twice, about my condition. Both times they ignored me as though I had neither spoken nor existed. Before I could try again I was shuffled out and sent to xray, told to bring a red enve!ope back. There was no radiologist present so there was nothing in my envelope. When I cot back to the original c!ininc evertpyone had gone. I handed in my envelope to the staff nurse, but they told me thati would have a number of admissions before i saw the cosultant. Then they tied to fob me off on someone I had never met before. This left me sitting in an empty room left luggage so I left. Subsequent phone calls did not clarify the matter, andvi have decided that I will never enter the conquest hospital if I was piad to do it. Out of a life time of outpatient appointments, the consultant was the rudest, the idea that they could get round waiting lists by having me come there to test one thing, a mammogram, then leave weeks before a consultation that might eventually speak of treatment or biopsies, to be a way of cutting waiting lists without ever having to treat one. I will not return.
