My understanding of the TRAQs system was that I would be given choices of hospital and consultant. However, when contacted by TRAQs, I was not given any choice. Merely offered an appointment at a certain hospital with an unnamed consultant.
It was only because I queried this that I was told that I would have to research on Dr Foster health website and then request a particular consultant and hospital.
When I had chosen a consultant I was told that I would only request a hospital and they would give me a time and perhaps the name of the consultant.
The consultant offered was on page 9 of the list of consultants on Dr Foster and did not merit a classification on the 3 best fit indicator. I had to persist to get the consultant of my choice.
I must point out that the staff were at all times very courteous.
