My fiancee went for an x ray today on her back after being referred as an emergency by her GP. They refused to do it on the grounds that she had had an xray on the same area four weeks ago and there would be no change to her condition and also that she would get too much radiation in the space of four weeks (even though they gave her a chest x ray!) This 'diagnosis' was made with no examination and after consulting her line manager without them even meeting the patient. So radiologists know better than doctors now and given that my fiancee has myeloma, I hope for their sake that this bad back is not the start of something more serious.
