"Incompetent consultants. Admission staff never..."

About: Chase Farm Hospital

Anything else?

I got my appointment through which after all the tests Barnet hospital carried out. Concluded I needed to go to Chase Farm for this procedure. After waiting over a year and alot of cancelled dates from them. I get to the hospital quite a journey as well as organising childcare and time off work the Nurse gives me the gowns.The consultant who had just read my notes minutes before my arrival tells me they wont be performing the op as the test results are too old. Which is there fault and I would therefore have to start the whole process again and its taken over a year to get this far.I will give Barnet credit were it is due. I have left there in tears still none of the wiser of how bad the condition has got and have no choice but to transfer hospitals And start again not knowing how serious it is.
