About: Calderdale Royal Hospital / Neurology

I saw a Consultant in July. I had to ask them to speak slower. They were 70 mins late and was trying to rush me, I had waited months for an appointment not to mention an hour and a half to see them. They tried to tell me my Migraines weren't migraines I know exactly what they are I have lived with them for 41yrs. Seen the best specialists in the country. I found them rude and unhelpful. They did say in the letter to my GP that they may look into a medication, but nothing has been done, I just struggle on trying to live a normal life, doing my job running my home. This person tried to browbeat me, but I'm not easily beaten thankfully. All in all not a great experience.
