I had the misfortune of seeing a particular Consultant.
They humiliated me in front of their trainee, telling me that I'm overreacting regarding my condition and said I must have mental health issues. This made me cry and instead of offering a tissue, they and said trainee just sat gawping at me like I was their entertainment for the day.
They said that they couldn't help me regarding my condition but their colleague in a London NHS trust could. I travelled to London for my appointment but said colleague was confused as to why I'd been sent out of my local trust to them and returned home disappointed without receiving any treatment.
I wrote to the Consultant asking why they did this to me but no response.
I find it shocking that a medical professional would behave in this way and even more shocking that NHS allow this behaviour from its staff.
