"surgical follow up"

About: Leighton Hospital

After a recent hernia op I was given a 3 outpatient check up,the operation was successful but I still had an issue I felt needed looking at,for some reason I did not see my surgeon but someone I felt was there to say yes or no I was fixed,they refused to look or listen to my other problem which im sure would have been identified by my surgeon,and was hurried out of the door feeling very let down...not what I was expecting from a previously exellant service...and I would have expected more from someone in such a position..very poor indeed.
