"I am very angry at the way I have been treated"

About: Western Infirmary/Gartnavel General / Radiology

(as the patient),

I recently was referred by my ENT Consultant for an MRI Scan. I had my first appointment which I had to cancel as I explained that a Sunday Appointment was not suitable due to my religion I could not travel on this day. I was then given another appointment which was late on a Saturday night and I asked if this could be arranged for through the day as I was not keen on travelling by public transport at 8pm at night, I was later told I would not get another appointment for this scan and I was later told by the operator that I would refer back to my consultant (I do not have a return appointment for this department ).

I am very angry at the way I have been treated by them and there was no clear guidelines to say only two appointments would be given. I have now been left in limbo in relation to this and the attitude by the operator when I said I could not travel on a Sunday I was later told other Catholics can travel on a sunday why cant you? its a complete disgrace that I had to justify my religion to someone I do not know.
