"The consultant, on the one and ..."

About: Withington Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked The consultant, on the one and only occasion h saw me, was courteous and professional What could be improved? I suffer from a mysterious chronic UTI, which is not onyl very painful, but got me into A&E when it lead to kindey failure and hence dehydration (unstoppable vomitting): I am 38 years old, and was also breastfeeding a newborn baby at the time. I waited over two months for the initial consultation, which finally took place in early June. Some tests were undertaken in the following two weeks, and I was to be called "straight back" to hear the results. I am still waiting: now for almost six months since the first referral. All my telephone calls inquiring about my appointment have led me nowhere.
