"Every Breath that is Taken ?"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

I had been waiting over 9 months - with GP intervention ignored, then told to come a week earlier .On Lung Function had stopped breathing 11x never told not even in discharge letter . As have severe back pain & spasticity not all time could relate to oxygen pumping when went to A&E they refused to address back pain & spascity [ temporary bouts] on grounds of weight when probably due to poor oxygen pumping- cardiac arrest 8 yrs ago & lymphoedema just diagnosed. There is somone who manages Complaints /PALs Dept who causes more problems than resolves knowing she employs persons who cannot record & resolve fairly honestly wanting to follow procedures that are so bad. So issues wanted to raise just left in limbo. The staff generally are excellent but a few gang up in a particularly nasty fashion with Car parking attendants bullying . What is worse when given over to Chairmans Office what appeared to have been an ethical response from a lady, appeared to be punishment removing the only appt ever had pretending Doctor not there then discharging when never saw on arrival... Is this what I get instead of regular heart appts transferred because moved.
