"Out patient clinics"
Posted by Granny (as ),
A tale of two clinics!
At Queen Margaret's Cardiology department, the nurse who did ECG & blood pressure was very pleasant and put me at ease. However when I went in to see Cardiologist I felt that they were abrupt and made me feel like I was a nuisance. I tried to explain my symptoms but I felt that they did not seem interested. I did not take up much of the doctors time. I realise I am elderly and have complex medical problems but I was attending because my lovely GP thought it necessary.
I had another appointment at the Victoria hospital with the speech and language therapist and my experience was vastly different, she listened carefully and gave me some good advice and explained what follow ups I would be having. I felt she really cared about me and my problems. Thank you Alison you are a star!
