"Lost Proctogram Report"
Posted by Madge51 (as ),
I had this procedure at the end of 2014 after waiting 7 months. I waited 12 weeks after hoping to hear from my consultant at Wishaw General. They said they hadn't received the document that was 'mailed' (which I took to be emailed otherwise the person would have said 'posted') at the end of 2014.
I spoke with member of staff recently and they agreed to investigate the disappearance of this vital document.
It may be too soon for the member of staff to investigate I concluded however, this failure needs to be highlighted since my review of a prolapsed bowel & bladder cannot, apparently, be progressed without it.
Its over a year now since this procedure was requested and as a result of the delay I now cannot been seen until summer. Since these conditions are huge complication to the Scleroderma & Raynauds that I also have, I am appalled that there are no safeguards to prevent such failures.
I'd be very interested to hear your view on this entirely preventable situation, how it occurred and how you plan to ensure that it never happens to anyone else.
