We had the misfortune to visit the respiratory specialist for my husband; the doctor who had been in post a week. The Attention shown at consultation which was negligible. I had specifically told them I'd been told I had isolated a pneumonia bug in a sputum specimen done by GP. This was dismissed.
Eventually I asked about treatment and they said they would contact my doctor.
This was done but not after dismissing the infection as copd (accurate but still needed treament) finally prior to my leaving they eventually listened to my chest!
A chest clinic basic one would expect.
Totally unacceptable in my opinion.
Why does it need an appt at hospital for that response.
I was disgusted.
