About: Arrowe Park Hospital Arrowe Park Hospital Wirral CH49 5PE
My appointment was in February 2014. The locum ophthalmologist was late to clinic, they did not conduct the tests relevant to my condition that I have since learnt should have been conducted for my condition. I was not given a diagnosis and left with no treatment plan. I was in a lot of pain and discomfort at this time and the condition I have only worsens when left untreated and causes permanent damage. I then had to ask for a referral to another hospital in Birmingham where I got diagnosed. I did return to Arrowe Park in August 2014 to see a consultant who specialises in my condition. Why didn't the trust let me see them in February? If they had then I would not have taken up 2 further NHS appointments that could have gone to someone else. Furthermore I waited for 16 weeks for my appointment. I waited 8 weeks for my appointment at Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre.
