"Chronic back and foot pain"

About: NHS Ayrshire & Arran

(as the patient),

I have for the last six years, been politely asking the NHS Ayrshire and Arran health board, for the correct and proper funding, for the effective treatment of chronic foot and back pain. Now I have submitted, an effective treatment plan from the Blackberry Orthopaedic Clinic, in Milton Keynes, England, nobody is listening, to my requests, for the funding of this.
