Hospital Messing Up My Acutane Course (Nhs)


I'm three months into my course, at the end of month the receptionist who was meant to give me a repeat appointment said she'll send me a letter for my appointment in two months.

I had the blood test two weeks ago but i still haven't recieved a letter. My last appointment was august 15th and my pills finished last week.

After calling monday 10th oct the doctor overseeing the treatment said i'd get a letter in 3 days, i waited a week and have been calling non stop the past couple of days. Finally i call again just now and get through to a secretary i'm told i'll be seen in 4 weeks.

Wtf, accutane is serious stuff and they're messing about like this. How bad is it that i have to wait a month before i start again? I want this over and done with, why can't things just go smoothley. It only takes 5 minutes to be seen to. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what i should do next.

Btw. its St Mary's hospital dermatology in London for anyone reading this, AVOID!

It's crazy how this stuff can happen when they are supposed to be helping you. I would call every other dermatologist in your area and say you need to see them asap to continue your Accutane treatment.

I know i cannot believe it myself. That would mean having to go private which will rape my wallet! I'm going to try again on Wednesday as i could only get through to a secretary.
