Hi everyone so dd has been seeing a specialist at the royal children's hospital and I don't like him as I have seen him before at a private practice when my ds was having sleep problems and all he said the whole time was I'm not impressed because I old him I thought next door could have been waking him up because they were loud. So anyway I took dd to her first appointment at the RCH as the family doctor is worried she has more then a speech delay and who do I get I get him. He said he would write to my daughters speech therapist and put her on a waiting list for another place. But to continue on with speech therapy. But didn't say anything about her having more the a speech delay knowing I too feel as tho there is more then a speech delay I told him this and again I'm not impressed I don't think so as I have been seeing children for 50 years etc. so because he has put my daughter on a waiting list for another program her PRIVATE speech therapist won't see her because they think they do see people that have more then a speech delay knowing he said that he doesn't think there is more then speech delay. Then df and I decided its in the bet interest to change doctors so I contact RCH and get this response via email Dear
If you would like to see another doctor, then yes your child will have to go back onto the waiting list, as we have children who have not even had their first appointment as yet and are still on the waiting list waiting for their turn. Please obtain a new referral sent through from your GP and your child will be placed on the waiting list.
I think this is wrong if you have seen someone before and on the file it states must be seen in 3 months how can they put a nearly 4 year old on a waiting list where she was on the last waiting list for 18 months before being seen what happened to the days if you were not happy with a doctor you could change..
Do you think I am over reacting with being annoyed that I can't change? I have now kept this appointment with the doctor that I don't like and dd won't go near!!
