"Take someone in with you!"

I was referred to Woodlands as an urgent case, by my GP as I had an eye problem. My initial consultation was short and I felt, not thorough. At my second appointment, a week later, with the same consultant, I took my husband in with me. There was a distinct improvement in attitude, length of consultation, attention and thoroughness. I really would advise anyone to take a relative or friend in with them, to avoid any differences of opinion that might occur. At both consultations I was told things that I found to be unhelpful. I have complained to the Matron and she has been very helpful, but I still feel that I need to advise future patients of my experience at Woodlands.
