I received this gem this morning. Have to cut out bits and pieces, ya know yourself but if you can remember that the wound in question needing treatment arrived in 2009 whilst I was in a Coma and is still with me to this day. Okay?
Dear Mary Smith,
Our records show you are currently on an outpatient waiting list in University Hospital Galway under DUNNE, MR. A. PLASTIC CONSULTANT.
You were referred by Dr. Mickey Mouse on 1st. February 2012.
We are currently updating our outpatient waiting lists and would be grateful if you could confirm whether you still want to remain on this waiting list and that your details are correct.
Waiting List Manager
In other words, "have ya died yet by any chance please God ya have". Not to mention me sitting here this morning wondering why they were calling this medic a "PLASTIC CONSULTANT".
By the way, I live in Castlebar, Co. Mayo. It costs a fortune to get to Galway and I have no money, but hey, maybe the hearse will drop me off on the way out to collect other patients who waited years on the "waiting list". Meanwhile, I'll carry on going up the road to the clinic, twice a week, to get the wound dressed. Four years and counting. Did I tell you about me leg.......
