It took me 40-45mins to get to this hospital for my appointment as I was told this was the only in the area that could help my condition. My referral letter gave me the wrong postcode which took me to the old department. When I called to say I was lost a very rude receptionist directed me but made me feel very rushed an panicked. On the appointment I was greeted by a very nice member of staff, however they decided to guess my issues instead of talking to me and getting to know why I was there.
The member of staff explained how they could definitely help with my problem but they would need to speak to my partner first. I was in the appointment for 10mins if that. Then my partner had to book time off out of work to come to the second appointment that was 'vital he came or it wouldn't work' to sit there for 5-10mins to be handed a piece of paper saying google what you need to do. I think this service is awful as we have both taken time off work to travel when all this could have been kept to a phone call or at least just explained to me. Will not be returning for our 'follow up visit' after we have treated and diagnosed ourselves!!
