"Waiting for test results"
Posted by clarabelle96 (as ),
My mother attended Southern General Hospital at the end of July for a lumber puncture; following this the consultant dictated her results and sent these to be typed in a letter to be sent to the same consultant. She then attended Crosshouse hospital to discuss the results on a month later only to be told the results had not reached the consultant. This is not an acceptable service.
The consultant who did the test, knows her test results but I think because he has dictated them to be typed by a third party rather than typing them himself my mother now has to spend another 2 weeks waiting & worrying about these results.
