What options do I have when the relationship with the consultant at my local hospital breaks down?
Thanks for your question to our Information and Support Advisers, Nat and Martin. I hope you don't mind but I've moved your question into our 'Ask a Nurse' section on the Community as they'll be best able to answer your question. They'll aim to respond within 2 working days.

Thanks for getting in touch with us and welcome to our Online Community.
We’re sorry to read that your relationship with your consultant at your local hospital has broken down. When this happens it’s natural to want to know what options you may have.
There are a couple of options that we can suggest that you try.
Sometimes it can help to talk to others who have gone through a similar experience. If you think that would be helpful to do, you can start a discussion and talk to others.
Sometimes it can help talk to one of our nurses on our Support Line. We are open 7days a week, 8am till 8pm. You can call us on 0808-808-0000.
Best wishes and take care.
Ellen-Macmillan Online Digital Nurse Specialist.
