Being in Salford Royal for the last 8 weeks & foreseeable future my glucoma started giving me problems so my consultant arranged for me to go mri clinic e to get it checked. I am already registered under the doctor. Today i arrived 9-30a.m to an already packed waiting room, explained my situation & they were aware of my situation ( current long term inpatient). After 2 1/2 wait i asked why it was taking so long to br seen ? I was told because i dont look ill i was just like a walk in of the street. I told the nurse to go google Crohns disease. By this time i felt mentally & physically drained. Eventually i was seen by glucoma doctor, eye pressure 34, 3 more sets of drops & further lazer treatment in near future. I arrived by hospital transport & was told by receptionist they would arrange transport back to Salford Royal. By 3pm i gave up waiting & made my own way back ( 3 buses) arriving 5pm ish. i wasnt even offered a cup of tea. I dont know what it is about eye clinics, always long waits but todays experience took it to a new level. Incidentally i am sure if a MRI inpatient came to Salford Royal they would be treated with much more respect & dignity than i received. Today was personally the worst nhs mri experience i have ever had or wished to have.. Totally ill & disgusted.... Ps i write this from my bed, hooked up to TPN in Salford Royal hospital.
