Constant game of ping-pong between the GP - who has been very good - and the gynaecology department at RIE - lasting for over a year.
It took ten months to get a diagnosis for my mum (aged 85, suffering from post-menopausal bleeding). Had to wait four weeks for every test and four weeks for the consultant to answer every letter sent by the GP.
At last, they want to see her. GP sends a fax to the consultant and her secretary asking for an appointment in early February. I call the appointments desk today and there is no record of any pending appointment.
Have been trying to call the secretary all day but no-one is picking up.
