"Poor diagnosis"

About: Salford Royal

After trying to get to see and endo over a period of 2 years I finally got an appointment. They then rushed through the symptoms telling me they all could be psychological issies, took a blood test and sent a letter say I was discharged. No explanation of my blood results, no copy of the results. Basically did the same thing that my GP would do. The NHS has no interest in helping people who fall into the low 'normal' category of lab ranges. This is cynical medical care at best, it is negligent at worst. So if you are a young male with the same blood levels as an old male you can forget the NHS helping you. Guess I'll have to go private, how convenient for them.
