"Consultant laughed and told me that all test..."

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

What I liked

I cannot say anything positive about my care i this department.

What could be improved

I attended this department after experiencing certain difficulties with my health. The Consultant requested tests on my first appointment. Several weeks later, when I attended to discuss the results of the tests, the Consultant laughed and told me that all of the test results had been lost and that he was going to discharge me from his care rather than order the tests again.

I had been suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning at the time and I was later told that it was a miracle that I survived considering all the doctors who missed the symptoms, this Cardiologist being one.
