4.4 If you answered yes, please give a brief detail in the text box below 

  • Hospital x-ray disclosed issues which the radiographer questioned me about. The surgery subsequently telephoned me to give me the all clear, without any explanation. The physical problem remains. I did not feel the surgery handled the matter in a personalised way.
  • Some results go straight to the doctor and we then need an appointment to discuss the results I rang for an appointment and was told X ray results from Bracknell had been received by doctor. Xray receptionist/clerical assistant stated no remarks on results written by doctor so nothing to report to me.  Very  unsatisfactory.
  • Although I was assured from the nurse who was doing my yearly diabetic check to date I have not heard from a diabetic nurse. This issue needs to be looked at
  • The hospital lost my blood samples
  • Had to go more than four times and was given creams and medication. Then given an appointment to see a specialist
  • I disagree with it
  • It was difficult for the receptionist to find the scan results because apparently there are 2 systems.
  • I had an infection and the doctors gave antibiotics which didn't work and 3 times they changed it, then said it will dry by itself but it didn't dry, then again I took appointment and the doctor examined and referred me to hospital, there the doctor examined and told get the MRI done quickly, and I got the MRI appointment letter after 2 months, I was really frustrated because that infection was from the month of August and it's February now and still it's unsorted, I’m very upset with it and also some rude doctors like Dr.Harper, she is very rude and give suggestions which are not relevant.
  • Test Results took over a week to be on the surgery system
  • Following a bone density scan at hospital I was not given any result. On asking Reception I was told as the Dr. had seen the results and not commented there was no need to follow up. On a later visit to the Dr. some months later I raised the question, to be told I needed medication. Now I always ask for test results.
  • Reception staff will offer results but are unclear on next follow up
  • Sample was contaminated and I was not advised until I chased it up
  • Receptionist can only give very basic information - not particularly reassuring
