"8 months of daily seizures"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

I went to my doctors in April 14, had an assessment with neurology on 18th June 14, was told I would have an EEG within two weeks, this was actually three months. I was told I would have a follow up appointment 3 months from June and I still haven't had a letter telling me when this is and when I ring all I get is there will be one in the post by the end of the week. So sick of the poor treatment I have received from this department regarding my seizures and I have recently been to A&E twice now after falling down the stairs having seizures and told I would not be getting any medication to stop these from happening until I see the consultant again. I am starting to feel like they don't care about their patients or they just don't believe me.
