"I waited two hours to be told they were not set up for procedure"

About: Southern General Hospital / Urology The Royal Victoria Infirmary / General medicine

(as the patient),

I had been to Southern General Urology Unit where I had an x-ray. I have a permanent catheter, I was told that they would be in touch.

They then sent me an appointment for day care centre in mid June at Victoria Infirmary.

I waited two hours only to be told I have two stones in my bladder and they were not set up for that procedure.
