"Consultant appointment with Registrar??"

About: Northern General Hospital

Have waited months for appointment with consultant but here you have to make do with a registrar! Who either did not listen to me when I told him about my frozen shoulder or deliberately leant really heavily on it whilst examining me. Also had to complain to a nurse to get any explanation of tests. when asked about inflicting pain on me during exam he made it sound part of exam - well I would like to know what he was checking for. And it may just be a quirk of mine but I don't like an audience when I'm having tests done, seems they don't mind doing bloods in public here! Would heartily advise people to avoid this Hospital.
