"Immunology"

About: Northern General Hospital

Anything else?

After being under this service fell ill with shingles and under no treatment and having another month to wait for a appointment phoned the consultants secretary after 2 days and no phone call back phoned again and was told I wasn't important enough to get a earlier appointment ! Surely if they were ill and also was missing time off work which in my case is the NHS ! Would be important ? I'm starting to lose all confidence in this service , and losing my confidence in the Nhs . I'm trying my best to get on my feet but feels like I'm being abandoned ! As I'm not important enough ! I want to keep my job in the Nhs surely that's important enough ! ?
