I was convinced to go private due to the 2000 patients on consultants list, hinting a very long wait.
No examination was given. An appointment was booked privately to have investigations under sedation. Upon arrival on the day of appointment I mentioned that I would need a deep sedation as I did not want to remember anything. Unfortunately I remember everything. The doctor came round to see me at my insistence, to say that they made a clinical decision to carry on even thought I was jumping off the table pleading with them to stop.
I had to chase for results which took a month privately.
I still have the same problem, which is even worse now and have been re-referred to another doctor at East Surrey. This has been going on for over one year and a half now. My appointment is now in December, for a consultation, but has been cancelled twice.
