My husband passed away due to cancer and consequently cancer is a real worry for me so I decided as part of my recovery I would get my skin checked out for any potential problems. Why I didn't go to my GP is a question I am now asking myself. They most certainly would have taken my worries seriously. However, I decided to pay £100 thinking I would get time to chat with the consultant about things to look out for and for an explanation of all the different and many moles
I have over my body. I felt going to an expert was the right thing to do in order to alleviate my worries. Not so I'm afraid. Yes I had my skin checked but in the most hurried manner imaginable and with no chance whatsoever to explain my worries or to ask any questions. I was given a clear and ok but in a most hurried manner.
The doctor was obviously in a desperate hurry to leave and I felt uncomfortable taking up any more of their time. What an unpleasant experience it was for me. It's the quickest I've ever spent £100 and feel quite stupid that I thought I would be given someone's undivided attention and time. Instead I had just a matter of minutes. The hospital itself is lovely and other treatments I've undertaken have been excellent. However, if you want to waste £100 I would advise you to go to a casino, you'll loose the money just as fast! Regarding moles though, I have no doubt your GP will give you a very much better service. Yes I'm very disappointed .
