The whole experience of my procedure was excellent, staff could not have been more helpful and the building was clean and welcoming. My only issue is with the consultant who prior to the procedure made little attempt to explain what was happening and the potential outcome and after the procedure they decided not to progress the procedure further because they felt that there had not been enough improvement to give me enough improvement in my quality of life. Surely it is me who can decide the impact on my quality of life. They made this decision without even speaking to me, so much for respect and involvement in decisions (unfortunately there is not a no star option. Absolutely disgusted, demanded to see them and requested second opinion and filed formal complaint. This is not how it should be!
