On july 22nd i went for a 'dat scan', the chap carrying out the scan said a couple of things, firstly 'your result's will be analysed and with your consultant the next day' and 'you should make a emergency appointment with your consultant'
I brushed that off as wishful thinking, the nhs doesn't work that fast !!.
It took me quite a while too get a appointment for the results having been given the run around by various nhs contacts, i eventually got a appointment for october the 1st.
The other day my eyes being dry and inflamed i made a appointment at my gp surgery.
I started off telling the locum i saw about my eyes and that it was on top of all the other problems i have had in the past year and that they were under investigation with a Neurologist.
the locum then told me 'yes your eye problems are linked to your parkinsons', 'your neuro will go through them all with you and change your medication's on oct 1st'.
I told him i haven't actually been diagnosed yet!!.
My Fist thoughts were i think you've jumped the gun a bit, but i dismissed what he was saying as only my Neuro should tell me that i have Parkinsons. the appointment ended and i got some cream for my eyes and eye drops.
This morning the Post arrived and there was a appointment letter for a assessment with A-tos on monday 6th of october, just a few days after my appointment with the Neuro.
All a coincidence?? or After a year i finally have a diagnosis?? and suddenly a assessment!!
And i am the last too know??.
The man doing the Dat scan could see what was going on with the scan.. I couldn't.
The locum Read my notes prior too my appointment... i couldn't
And no doubt the DWP has access and communicates with the NHS.
I bet i am in for the same Disgraceful treatment others have received on the forum, and reported in the press from A-tos and the DWP post assessment.
