My friend had an appointment with a member of the liaison team. I thankfully visited her after this and was astonished to find her very upset.
She didn't want to give me full details but did say that the appointment had been very difficult and that she had felt very little point in being there.
My friend is very scared of men and has asked to see a female doctor, a request which has been refused for no good reason as far as I am aware.
I don't want to go into too much detail as she wouldn't want me to and doesn't know i'm writing here, but I had to as this treatment is not acceptable.
A person should not be this distressed after an appointment!
