"Waiting a year for appt for support"

About: Hillingdon Hospital

I would not advise anyone go to this hospital! I was referred here last yeAr in march for an issue with my shoulder........... Roll foward 15 months and just due to the fact of me chasing things up I have just got my appointment because they forgot about me! I have two letters also stating that I would benefit from surgical intervention and u guessed it I am referred back to start the whole process again! Pointless! I have wasted a year for nothing if I wouldn't have chased these incompetent people I would stil be waiting! They all blame each other and still try to deny me my medical care I need! No dates are available to see a urgen and have to wait about 3 months to get my support after this date! What an absolute joke the NHS really is! Shame on u all!
