In September I had a flare up of a long term condition and sent to the eye hospital on an emergency appointment. The consultant put me on treatment (drops) and said I need to see you in a month. But when I got the appointment letter it was for 4 months later. I phoned and they said "that's the next available one". After 2 months I got another flare up. I went into an emergency appointment and the Doctor said: "But you were meant to come back in 4 weeks - what do you expect? ? ". I was left feeling that I was being blamed. But it's not my fault.
