"Endocrinology at Chelsea & Westminster (thyroid disorders)"

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital

(as the patient),

I am a person with complex needs, I can honestly say I am not the 'typical straightforward thyroid patient'.

As I am currently suffering and am struggling to carry on with my daily life, I find it quite puzzling that my appointments are 5+ months apart.

When I attended at my last appointment, I had to reschedule as the only doctor who understands my position and can treat me was not there. I was promised I was going to be sent another urgent appointment. The 'urgent' appointment came and it is 5 months later. As last time I was seen was 5 months ago, that will make it 10 months. I will not be able to try and improve my situation. I think I will have to take my health into my own hands.
