"Treatment as out patient"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I saw the consultant regarding my knee and was told no further treatment was being done. I questioned certain parts of his decision and requested a second opinion waking out of the clinc as I will not be treated as a second class person which is how I felt. 5 weeks later I received a letter that was cc to my gp stating I requested second opinion to this date have not seen or heard off anyone totally dissatisfied with this place and never been treated like that at hospital before
