About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Gynaecology

I came to see my consultant on the 4th Feb after having a operation in December 2015 and was admitted with high blood pressure and headaches.on the 6th Feb I was sent for a brain scan and was told the scan was fine.7 months later still having headaches and my gp asked if I have had a brain scan and I said yes back in Feb.They looked at the results and they told me they found a small cyst and I did not know.i let my consultant know and they did know I had been sent for a scan so I was not happy when I found out .
