"Treated like dirt and stuck in limbo."

About: Royal Derby Hospital

Seen by very rude and pompous neurology consultant in 2012. Hurried examination. They turned their back and started to dictate report while I was sitting their, just ignored me until I left. Follow up a year later after multiple GP requests. Tests in 2013 and early 2014. Nothing since. GP letters trying to get next appointment, with no response from neurology. What more can I say?
