During the initial tests held at the hospital I was very happy with how sensitivily the matter was dealt with by the nursing team.
I'm afraid I can't say this for how our first consultation appointment. We were not given any support or guidance for the process that we're going through. My husband was made to feel as though it's his fault. No medication was offered or guidance on how to improve our chances. The questions were given to us very fast and we wernt given the time to process the information. I became upset at one point from the news we were given, the consultant didn't pause or ask if we needed a moment. She just carried on and spoke faster, when we had questions she shrugged her shoulders and didn't respond to us. We are unsure of the next stage and the long waiting times in between each appointment is stressful.
I am disappointed as a fellow NHS employee at the level of compassion that was not shown. Trust values were not taken into consideration. We are both upset and unsure of what's happening.
