"Tired of waiting"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital


Sept 2015 i was referred to Scunthorpe Eye Clinic by a Consultant at Grimsby who wanted me to see another Consultant, i got an appointment in February 2016 but saw a doctor who said i needed to see the Consultant several weeks later i saw the Consultant who said i needed an angiogram which i had in due course then went back few days later to be told it wasnt suitable i would have to have another one which indue course i did and again went back for results to be told again it wasnt suitable the first Consultant said i would have to have another one but they would make sure the second Consultant would see me straight after with the results, indue course i had my 3rd angiogram but was told the second Consultant was not in the building and i would have to come back in two weeks for the results, 7 weeks later and i am still waiting. I have wasted far too many hours and far too much money on these wasted visits to the hospital it is a total shambles. In the meantime the angiogram will be another wasted one as my eye has altered since the last one.
