"Waiting too long for an appointment"

About: Countess Of Chester Hospital / Gastroenterology Countess Of Chester Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

Went into hospital in November, no-one has come up with a cause for my serious symptoms.

Every time I have to speak to a doctor I have to describe my symptoms over and over again, which is very stressful and distressing. No specific named hospital doctor seems to be in charge of my case. I have to wait 2 months to get an appointment with the one department of the hospital which might be able to come up with answers.

I am extremely depressed and frightened.
