"Chasing up CT Scan"
Posted by suelanarkshire (as ),
I was referred by consultant to have a CT scan but that was in last Dec and I am still waiting for any communication from hospital of when that will be.
I have telephoned and met with my GP to ask when I will get the scan. She informed me that even thought they have written twice to both consultants that they have still to receive a reply. I was advised to contact the consultant's secretaries myself to ask when I will be seen. I do not know where these consultants work as I was seen in Glasgow's Royal Jubilee hospital who contract these consultants from other areas and therefore cannot call their secretaries.
I do feel however that it should not be left up to the patient to 'chase-up' such matters and would expect this to be done by a medical professional.
