"Disgusted, appalled, offended"

My daughter has ADHD and had been referred to Hallam st on the 22nd October which she had every intention of going when she received the appointment.

I really must apologise for my little brother, my daughters uncle, for dying suddenly at home, on his own, the day before said appointment.

It really was rather selfish of him.

I mean, what 46 year old man wants to die suddenly and make my daughter unable to attend said appointment?

Well, the letter my daughter received telling her it wasn't enough reason to cancel the appointment didn't think it really mattered.

Therefore my daughter has been referred back to her own GP. I am disgusted, offended, angry and extremely hurt that my brother’s very sudden death was not an acceptable reason for her to miss this appointment.

Yet another reason to hate this hospital
