"Pain management"

About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent

Had a consultations which went very well, I was told it would be about 6 weeks for my spinal injections, rang to enquire was told Queens Hospital at Burton on Trent had not informed them of any theatre space for pain management so just on the waiting list until they are informed. When the Nations was not run by Queens i everything ran very smoothly, now it's just a shambles. Have been having these injections for years but this department doesn't seem to be noticed by queens .
