Like another patient on here - I'm Type 1 Diabetic and attending Gartnavel General Hospital Diabetic Clinic \ Centre for about 30 years but in the last year or two things have seriously gone downhill. I always used to have an early morning appointment (8. 30am) which would allow me to be only a couple of hours late for work, but last time they cancelled my appointment they gave me one for 10. 15am which when I phoned to re-arrange they advised they would not be able to give me an 8. 45am appointment until December (I phoned in April! ). When I attended this morning they wanted me to have a 6-month check up but could only give me an appointment between 9. 30am and 11am one day a week ... far from satisfactory, and far far from suitable for patients who have jobs to attend.
My Diabetes has never affected my job and now my clinic appointments are going to make me miss an entire Half Day just for an hour's appointment. Very disappointing. Thinking of transferring to New QEU Hospital Glasgow but have no idea if they'll be any better. Thanks
