"Disappointed"

About: Broomfield Hospital

I injured my knee in July last year, and was first referred to the wrong clinic under a hip specialist instead of a knee specialist, after waiting months to see the wrong specialist, 7/8 months later I was referred to see the right specialist, I then waiting another 3 months to see him, where he said I need a arthroscopy and would get one in a couple of weeks, this was a month a go, I have had my pre op and am now told the op wont be till July. July will be a year since the injury of my knee and I have been on crutches and unable to walk ever since. At the beginning I was referred for physio but was discharged in November because he said I needed more treatment from the hospital first. I have been left unable to walk and put any weight on my knee and have been left in limbo and in a lot of pain since last year. I would not recommend anyone to go to this hospital I have been left fuming and in a lot of pain!
