"Took too long be told the wrong information"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

Anything else?

4 weeks ago I had a procedure at the hospital, they told me it would be 10 days maximum until I found out the results. After many phone calls and promises of letters and my results from their end, today after 4 weeks I got my results. Fair enough the results were clear but I have anaemia and the procedure was to help find out why after not knowing since I was 14. I have been on iron tablets since then and my iron levels have never been correct. I do not lose blood either and the doctor from the hospital just put down my anaemia to blood loss and said I should go on iron tablets. Did he not read my notes and see that I have been for 6 years and that I've had all different tests to find out why I have it? So now I'm back to step one.
