"Is this what we pay our NHS contributions for?"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

Anything else?

My husband is very ill and is wearing a catheter.

He has always been fit an healthy throughout his life.

When he got a urinary problem and had the catheter fitted, we assumed he would be seen by a specialist within a few days and were shocked to find out it will be almost two months wait.

Considering the damage a catheter can do we think this wait is disgusting.
