About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Gynaecology

I came to see my consultant on the 4th Feb 2016 and I was admitted with very high blood pressure and bad headaches. I was sent for a CT scan and the doctor came back to see me and told me everything was fine.seven months down the line and still having headaches so went to see my gp and asked me if I have had a scan and I said yes in Feb. So they looked and told me I had a cyst and I did not know.i got in contact with my consultant and they did not know I had been sent for this scan they had not been informed.
