About: John Radcliffe Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


What could be improved

I have been waiting for gynaecological surgery for endometriosis for 8 months, and I suspect that I will have to wait for much longer than promised as I have heard that two of their most experienced surgeons have both been allowed to go on sabbatical at the same time. The gynaecology outpatients clinic and appointments system is chaotic and staff don't bother to respond to your requests for updates on waiting times for surgery. I would advise other patients suffering from endometriosis to avoid the John Radcliffe.
