First I would like to commend PDFORRA and especially Damien for introducing the scheme for PDFORRA members.

I had been on the public waiting list for 6 months and I heard nothing from them, so I enquired where I was on the waiting list and to my disbelief I was in thin air because the doctor I was assigned to no longer worked for the HSE.

When I contacted Damien about the scheme and within 6 weeks I had my consultation appointment in Kingsbridge. My appointment was for 0900 and you wouldn’t believe but I was actually seen at 0900. I was then scheduled to have my procedure 2 weeks later. The care and hospitality shown to me in Kingsbridge was outstanding. I would highly recommend to this to anyone in need of medical care.
