"dismissive and patronising"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

Anything else?

after an appointment cut short because i was questioning the consultant, he ended up saying, bearing in mind at this point I had been his patient for 4 years and he was supposed to be looking at my notes... right christine (not my name) so, you live alone (I am married and have been for 30 years) you have no children...(I have 2). wht treatment are you on? I feel no support nor trust in the care i am being given. I feel the appointments at the hospital are a waste of my precious time. My gP has been so supportive and knows my name.
