I often only learn of appointments a day or two before they occur when I receive a text message "reminding" me of an appointment I have never been notified of.
They are supposed to send a letter but seldom do.
More than once the support staff have forgotten to refer me for appointments I was supposed to have and the mistake is only picked up weeks later when I call to ask why I have not received a letter.
The waiting times and delays between appointments are ridiculous.
5 months after fracturing a bone in my hand I am still yet to receive any treatment or assistance whatsoever, beyond being issued with a sling.
My hand has not healed correctly as a result and I am still struggling to get anybody in the NHS to take an interest.
