"Unable to diagnose allergies"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

Anything else?

I have had a medical problem for some time and the hospital were not able to diagnose my condition.

The hospital did not carry out any tests for quite some time and they seemed unable to arrange for theses tests until I seen a senior consultant at MK hospital. The hospital put me through a number of tests which however each of these were individually and then when received results would be irrelevant. This went on for a couple of years before I was so unwell that had to pay for private treatment which the senior consultant referred me to a London hospital which is when diagnosis was made.

I still attend the London Hospital for follow up appointments.

I feel that MK hospital needs to be more aware of allergies and be able to carry out necessary tests as I would not have gone through this ordeal for this length of time.
