I attended the Macular clinic as I had been told to wait 3 months, after which I could be given a diagnosis. No consultants were present as they seemed to have all taken holidays at the same time. The diagnosis would therefore be sent to me in a letter on their return. There was no opportunity for discussion, nor for any exchange of information. I came away feeling that cases such as mine do not matter much to consultants. The clinic could have been postponed, or patients could have been informed in advance and given the opportunity to change their appointments if they felt the need to discuss a diagnosis further.
