"Appointment time"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Positives: I was seen within 4 weeks of my symptoms the consultant who seen me was efficient and capable, with a pleasant manner.

Negatives: I was at first seen by a student Dr. I did advise the doctor that I was getting a lot of abdominal pain as well as my joint pains.

But I don't think the doctor was listening.

I have been given next appointment in August. I am in so much pain I can't get out bed some days. If the clinic can see me in 4 weeks of my symptoms why should I have to wait 3 months to be seen again. I am in so much pain.
