The Surgeon absolutely fantastic in consultation and diagnosis as were the speed of the necessary appointments to reach diagnosis.
However, opted to have operation at a different hospital within the trust.
Found out after ringing said Hospital last week that the person who said they were the surgeons secretary and quite happily discussed the details and would ring back was not actually the Surgeons secretary.
After them not ringing back and although the deadline as recommended by the surgeon is only a couple of weeks away I rang back today to actually speak to the correct secretary at the hospital I opted for who hopefully may be able to sort things out.
I think that the hospital needs to perhaps spend a little more time with the patient and explain what happens next instead of leaving the patient to sort things out
