Arrived on time for appointment, there was a small wait but nothing too serious.
The Nurse was lovely however the Consultant seemed very dismissive, I understand health professionals are very busy but they gave the impression I was wasting their time. Mole changed shape and became itchy when I was pregnant so was referred by GP, within about 3 minutes Consultant had a quick look at mole, said it was normal for things to change shape in pregnancy, advised it was growing normally and if I wanted it removed would have to go private as it was cosmetic and sent me on my way.
Not a very positive experience and concerned as had mole since childhood with no changes until recently.
