Further to my last entry, I had not yet received an appointment to attend for Ultrasound. I have telephoned XRay appointments to be informed that a referral had not been received from my appointment in March. I was advised to speak directly to the admin for the consultant concerned. After telephoning I was advised that my notes were in the office of the consultant and could not be accessed at this time, first question, why were my notes still in the office after nearly 3 weeks?
Anyway, secretary for consultant called me back and informed me that she had been able to access my notes, and the consultant I met with in March had INDEED written in my notes that ultrasound was required, however this referral had not gone through. I was then advised this consultant was currently on annual leave, and that the other consultant was in surgery all day today and it would be unlikely that the consultant in surgery would make a decision to fast track the referral to ultrasound on the other consultants behalf. Disgusted.
