"A complete mess!"

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

Too long a story to write a proper review, so a synopsis- fast-tracked 16 months ago, still have not seen a consistent consultant. Appointments are all over the place, I have lost two due to Eastbourne's complete incompetence.

I have been lied to, treated very badly,humiliated.

I have another appointment next week with my 6th consultant lets hope he is the right person this time and does not just palm me off to someone else. I would like to say that this next consultant according to my last consultants secretary does not work here - so i'm losing faith.
