    I see the NHS apologists are silencing anyone who draws attention to their corruption again. Rather proves my point, doesn't it.  :D:D
    ? Rather a bizarre comment to make.

    I wouldn't involve the PHSO. If you want cash you talk to a solicitor. If you want to get rid of NHS staff you inform the staff's regulator (GMC.GDC,NMC etc).

    If your GP is worried about your fertility then he/she is quite capable of instigating one themselves. It doesn't need a Urologist to request one.
    It's easier to 'perform" at home and take the sample to the GP than do it at the hospital.

    And if you just want the problem fixed, there's nobody to talk to.

    You need to be a lot clearer and factual imo - you post comes across and very convoluted and rambling.

    Reading your post I have no idea what it is exactly that you want and from who- never a good place to be when dealing with anyone from the medical profession

    The OP was referred by his GP for particular symptoms which the specialist did not investigate appropriately. He has been discharged back to his GP so has to begin the process again. He wishes to be seen by a specialist who will undertake the appropriate investigations in line with the OPs symptoms.

    I'm a girl and I understood it...

    From the consultant's  remarks  the appropriate treatment is not done by a consultant but by a radiologist which is where the GP should maybe have referred him..
    He did leave a helpful message saying to please consider the emboilzation so I'm just hoping the GP doesn't then refer me to yet another urologist as she now has everything she needs to know.

    Which would be very unusual to do this without a discussion with the patient

    It very much sounds like the OP misunderstood something during the consultation or has so much researched/self diagnosed info (not necessarily a bad thing) that when the urologist didn’t follow the OPs preconceived “script” all coherence and understanding went out the window.

    You had all the info about grading and the correct examination position - why did you not question there and then ?

    You had an idea what treatment you thought was required - why didnt you mention  that to the Dr ?

    Seen this happen so many times at our place when patients come out of the consultation and immediately say “what did the Dr say again”

    We are only getting one side of the story from someone who already has preconceived ideas and is obviously very anxious - a recipe for misunderstandings in my experience
