"Nothing really went to see surgeon ..."

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Nothing really went to see surgeon re a gastric by-pass and the main consultant and their team were so unaproachable and not easy to talk to... it was their way or no way. As a patient I had no say or choice in my treatment

What could be improved

The consultant and their team need lessons in being able to talk and discuss every aspect with patients.... they are not gods!

Anything else?

Not really thought this was going to change my life forever but now it has put me off any kind of surgery of this kind due to their actions... or not as the case may be
