"Unhelpful Haematology appointment"

About: Salisbury District Hospital

Drove a long way for my appointment with a haematologist today. I have been very unwell for many years and thought I was finally going to get to the bottom of it. My doctor obviously thought I'd suffered enough over the years to decide to send me to a professional. The haematologist I saw didn't listen to a word I said, made no notes and I think they pretty much made their mind up that nothing was wrong with me before I walked in. It was an absolute waste of my time. Even worse I'm still no closer to finding out why I feel so ill. Discharged within 10 minutes. In fact I spent longer in the cafe than I did in their office. Absolute disgrace
