"Waiting for results"

I was dropped from radiology waiting list due to Drs not communicating about as to why the request for a ct scan had been made.
I only discovered this as I contacted the doctor's secretary to say I had a holiday planned and was concerned that I may have received an appointment for during the holiday period.
I raised my concern with Patient Affairs this was investigated and I recieved an apology I also was given an appointment to discuss my future care plan in mid May
At the appointment the Dr shrugged their shoulders when I mentioned the communication between doctors. He asked a few questions
1 Did I have any diahorrea
2 Did I have symptoms of Arthritis
when I said no i was informed that investigations would need to start from beginning and I was given relevent documents to have blood taken.
I should have mentioned that the initial investigations were requested by my GP as I was anemic and was referred to Gastroenterology for Endoscopy and gastroscopy but unfortunatley I couldnt tolerate endoscopy, this was why he referred me for further investigations
My initiation consultation with Dr was April 2015
Initial appointment with hospital Dr was December 2015
I would have thought that I would have heard from the hospital Dr re bloods taken in mid May by now.
The bloods were normal I know this as another Dr (rheumatology) at Monklands informed me of this at my appointment on Monday 6th June.
I am assuming that no further investigations will be required but would have expected to have heard from gastroenterology informing me of results.
I contacted my GP surgery to ask if results were sent to them they have not received them.
Sadly there appears to be a breakdown in communication from gastroenterology
I would like to receive written confirmation from gastroenterology stating the outcome of blood results as I want to put this behind me and dont think that is asking too much
I would be grateful for your assistance.
