"consultant surgeon clinc b"

About: Halton Hospital

on having a appointment today with a consultant surgeon. in brief I have had a ongoing condition which for the past twenty years has been an issue and for which I have had surgery for in the past . an told in the past that surgery being the best course of action. but today ive been given antibiotics which I know will not help or work an told to come back in a few weeks . also I was spoke down to and spoken over when I was trying to get my opinion across about the lack of success of antibiotics in the past I found this consultant to be unsympathetic to my problem witch left me very upset and angry as I know it will only get worse as time go's by and I will be left in more pain then am in at the moment . also the prescription given to me was not signed by him so I ended up with no useless antibiotics ether also there was no consideration to if I could take these meds along with the other strong tablets I take each day . I had to wait for months for this appointment .!
