About: Leicester General Hospital

The treatment I have received from the Neourology department has been very poor. I was originally referred over 3yrs ago and was seen by an aragant pompous doctor who after a five minute appointment decided I was merely depressed and discharged. I was rerefered after being quite I'll and am still none the wiser to what may be causing my problems and discharged again last year. After ongoing illness I have had an MRI scan 3 weeks ago but have no appointment to get the results. I contacted the department today and was told a doctor will look at the scan on the 10th Feb and i will be sent an appointment after that or if they have no concerns will be discharged again. I have not as yet had a proper opportunity to discuss my health as I have never properly had a full consultation.
