"Not worth going"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

Felt let down. The consultant was unhelpful and was under he uimpression I was attending for another illness. I had to tell him what was wrong with me. Don't feel like going back for a future review because I don't see the point of doing so. It was a total waste of my time and a three hour round trip. The same goes for the Eye Infirmary when I was informed I had a cornea problem and at some point would need a transplant butneither myself nor doctor was informed of the actual name of the condition. Nor was there any follow up arranged to check on my eye condition. Don't say sorry and don't tell me to contact PALS I have lost all falth in Hull Infirmary! On a lighter note I am sure there are staff at the hosptial that reaaly see their job as a vocation and care about their patients just not met one yet!
