I had an appointment at the one step breast clinic at Wansbeck hospital after a 2 week wait. I accepted Wansbeck as it was the first available appointment offered and I was told by my GP that everything would be done today and I would get some results. After travelling for an hour and arriving in time for my appointment. I was shown in and met the consultant who examined me. After 2 or 3 minutes I was advised I would need a mammogram a CT scan and a biopsy and told me to make an appointment. I was informed that I could probably get one for that Thursday as there was no one in the radiology dept today to do anything!
One stop meant no stop. I have a perfectly good hospital 10 minutes from my home but it is not a one-stop clinic. Needless to say I was extremely upset after spending 2 weeks worrying. I have an appointment on Tuesday at my local hospital with the x ray dept. Let’s hope they have staff to do the necessary test. I cannot believe they allowed me to travel for an hour to be told no more than my own GP had told me. I have no desire to go back to Wansbeck. I have no confidence in them so hopefully I will be able to get the tests and any treatment somewhere they at least tell you in advance if your journey will be wasted.
