"What a nightmare!"

About: Leicester General Hospital

After being booked in for an endoscopy and colonoscopy I was seen after 8 weeks of waiting! only had the endoscopy as I didnt react well to the bowel flush so had to have that rebooked, which was fair enough. Most of the staff were lovely and explained everything but two members of staff seemed rude and uncaring. I have been trying to change my appointment for four days and have made around 50 calls but there is either no answer or the lines busy! Getting very frustrated! on my letter if you do not show up to the appointment then you are struck off yet trying to change your appointment is pretty much impossible!
