"Outpatient approach goes Pythonesque"
Posted by wearingbt94 (as ),
Remember the Monty Python sketch fondly known as The 4 Yorkshiremen?
The sketch where they sit around comparing notes about how tough things were when they were growing up and I believe if you try and tell the young people today…..they won’t believe ya!
Well I had a routine procedure a few weeks ago and the discharge notes said for surgical follow-up in 3/52 – sent an email to the day surgery unit saying ok guys it’s been more than 3/52 now so where’s the surgical follow-up appointment and path results?
Nothing, no response to the email nothing – not a sausage!
Then recently, I get a call in the morning saying I had an appointment with the surgeon 30 minutes ago – implying where are you! Quite gobsmacked, I said that was half an hour ago, are you serious? I have no notification whatsoever, no as usual appointment letter in the mail, no text message - absolutely nothing.
Ended up seeing the surgeon in any event (apologised to them for the tardiness of the system) and I believe everything has turned out surgically honky dory.
In my opinion, you need to get your act together, Hedland!
