"Consultants let this department down"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

First off this department breached my appointment date by quite a considerable amount. When I was finally seen after yet another cancellation, the consultant I had to see was rude to me and ignorant to my health issues. They made me feel like rubbish and put me off seeking a second opinion and ensuring my care was right.

Had I been stronger at the time I should have made an official complaint.

I wish this review centre allowed the review to be of a specific consultant.
