"Lengthy treatment time and lack of communication"

Posted by Painfully Slow (as ),
I was referred to Townsville hospital for both Left and Right Rotator Cuff/shoulder issues in late 2010.
I had several follow ups, x-rays, and finally MRI's before having my right shoulder attended to in late 2013.
Since then I have had a yellow confirmation slip asking if I still needed surgery.
From that date until today I have had no other communication with the hospital, until I called them and was transferred from surgical bookings to "clinics" where the phone just rang out to then go to voicemail and no return call.
I'm pretty over the lack if communication and follow-up that happens there. (Letter asking if I still needed to see them regarding shoulder - records and imaging would answer that quickly).
Very annoyed! ! !
