"Consultant didn't see me before or after"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

All of the nurses were wonderful, I must state that. I was disappointed in the level of knowledge my consultant showed on my condition (not much!) I wish I'd had the guts to cancel go somewhere more specialist.

The consultant also did not see me before or after the operation and I left with a three line discharge note the nurse gave me.

Three weeks on and I have no knowledge of what happened!
