"Confused with the healthcare process"

About: Shropshire and Staffordshire

(as the patient),

I was told by my GP that I would need to see an optician who would then refer me to a specialist. I saw an optician who said he would make a referral to my GP. I received an appointment to see another doctor who then said he would refer me to the hospital.

Today I have seen a doctor (specialist in eyes) who tells me my eye health is good but she does not do the treatment I need so she will refer me to someone who does. Are you confused because I am!
