My OH has been seeing the same neurologist for many years.
We live on the border of two health boards and the neuro we have been seeing is over the border
. This has never been a problem before as way back we travelled 50 miles to a different neuro in a different health board. He then transferred us to a more local centre after we were almost stranded there one visit due to heavy snow.
However, now we have been told that we can no longer see our long term neuro, even if we travel a few miles over the border as before, we'llhave to see a new neuro. Present neuro holds a clinic at our local hospital for neurology patients but that does not include Parkinson's patients. Confused??
Do we have a right to choose our consultant?
