About: Leicester General Hospital

After waiting 3 months for the appointment which is far too long..I was asked by the consultant "what do you want me to do" ! I went for a discussion re the most appropriate treatment relevant to the pain, discomfort etcetera I have to tolerate every day and night! I had the most briefest of examination resulting in being advised one change of medication and to visit my GP for the prescription! I always try to be pleasant and maybe I'm too laid back on reflection! ... So keep taking the tablets as the saying goes!
