"My doctor"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

My doctor

What could be improved

The administration of the gastro interology department has been zero. They do not send me appointments at all I have to ring the specialist nurse who tells me to come in the next day. Since December I had to chase up a procedure as I have been very ill. When I did get an answer they had no idea who I was and said I was not even on their list. I have been left on tablets that have made me see things and act like I am stoned and no one sends me a follow up appointment till May 2010. I could be dead by then and it is lucky I have a good GP as I think I would have. I am only 42 years old and I am as ill as I was when I first went there. I am going to ask to be transfered as I cant work anymore as I am too ill and appointments at this hospital are too rare for my liking.

Anything else?

I will also be making a complaint to the operation manager of the gastro Interology department.
