Re: [IPk] Consultant's behaviour



Yeah, I am beginning to consider King's, especially after a few people have
mentioned them here recently. It would be farther to travel but not much. I
think it is that they don't think I am capable of knowing what I need and
the nurse Shelia certainly washed her hands of it. I keep bad mouthing this
nurse but she does know her stuff and did some fantastic work with me at the
beginning. I had great confidence in her so I don't want other people who
may use her to have doubts in her ability.  However, maybe a fresh start
elsewhere would be good for all. I'd miss the Doc that does my retinopathy
as she is fab, but I guess that would be the only thing :)
