I've had a 2 year wait just to see a doctor at Ipswich Hospital; I've been in pain 24/7 for over 5 years.
I had an appointment Melbourne Cup Day to see a specialist and arrived 15 minutes early for an appointment in the early afternoon. An hour and three quarters after my appointment time, I got to see a doctor NOT the specialist I was to see. A dozen staff stood in the waiting room watching TV while people waited to see doctors.
The doctor was very fast and really did not seem to read my medical file.
At the follow up appointment I felt I spent no more than 2 mins with another doctor who again seemed not to have read my medical file and said we can’t find anything and quickly signed a discharge form.
I’m still in pain 24/7, so I guess I have to start again, another 2 year wait to a doctor in the Ipswich hospital. This is not good enough and is extremely poor the way I am treated, I’ m not a number I’ m a person who needs medical care, care I’m not getting.
