"UTI Clinic, still not sorted my UTIs"

About: Freeman Hospital / Urology

I attended the UTI one stop clinic on 19th July after suffering uti's consistently since February, constantly on antibiotics. They got so bad I was admitted to hospital twice.

But at the UTI clinic, I was told that I need a CT scan to confirm a diagnosis, which was arranged for the 5 th August.

I had a problem so contacted the UTI clinic, but a clerical assistant told me I could not talk to the consultant, whom I saw at the Clinic as hr was now on long term sick.

I asked if there was anyonelse able to help me and was told, no, go and see your doctor.

My doctor them said it was the hospitals responsibility, so no help there also. What worries me is its been 4 weeks since the scan and 6/7 weeks since attending the clinic and I am no further forward, still suffering.

Am I just going to be forgotten about because the person I originally saw is on ling term sick?

I do not think this is good enough especially as I was expecting to be helped and sorted on the 19th July, it is now September the 5th, surely all of these antibiotics I have had to take cant be doing my body much good.

A solution is all I would like.
