Last week I attended A&E at the usual busiest time and also during junior doctor strikes... When I got there I was seen by an F2 (Junior Doctor) who was really nice and diagnosed issue really quickly without an x-ray but did one anyways to confirm. The issue was that the hardware (screws) in my knee are too long and are causing discomfort to the surrounding tissue. They then referred me back to the consultant that did the op with an appointment the week after A&E (Today).
Outpatients were very busy today and took an hour to get seen by my consultant from the time of the appointment this was down to many factors one including my name disappearing from the screen and system spontaneously. When I eventually got to see the consultant it wasn't the consultant that did the op but they did help and talk through the pros and cons of having the screws out it was just a bit of a nuisance as got to wait now to see the consultant who did the op so more waiting... But the helpful nurse did try their best looking for a much sooner appointment...
