"Review refers Consultant attitude Disappointing"

About: The Walton Centre

Consultant attitude Patronising ,Dismissive not just to me they dismissed a previous Drs provisional diagnosis .

I have had worrying symptoms for 2 years now .and some before . Now my life is being affected and my Job in Jeopardy.

Employed in NHS for over 30 yrs Worked with many consultants ..this attitude ranks among the worse

I have experienced

Not interested in any thing I had to say !. How are they to get the info to make a diagnosis if they do not listen ?

No results of cognitive tests given. Grunted after checking reflexes .

left feeling Humiliated and belittled

no further investigations. come back in 6 months !

Their letter wasn't any better .

doesnt sound like a Human being they are referring to .

Now I have to start all over again ......Who is to say the next one wont be any better ?
