"The Consultant is rude, dimissive and doesnt..."

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

I have today had an appointment with a Consultant in gynaecology.

They hadn't read through any of the notes, asked me symptoms, dismissed each one.

Did a cursory vaginal check without asking me if it was ok or whether I wanted a female to do it.

They didn't really check for anything just ticked a box.

Told me a few times that they don't think my problem is gynae - without seeing any ultrasound results (they dismissed an ultrasound I had done elsewhere).

Never been treated like this. they actually didn't listen and didn't take time to look for my ultrasound scan or other results.
