"Request to speak to Consultant"

About: Homerton University Hospital

I am facing major surgery re partial hysterectomy..and have been placed on a number of medications which are /may be having bad interactions with other drugs. Despite outlining the problem to the secretary - I have been denied access to discussing quite serious medical complaints. I phoned my GP but was advised to contact the hospital consultant regarding this matter. I explained my problem to the admin who advised that the consultant doesnt take calls. Why?????? This person prescribed the drugs and should be on hand to answer queries regarding side efffects?!!! I will be contacting CQC regarding this matter
