"Why we have to wait so long with nothing being..."

About: James Paget University Hospital

It is now 4 months since i had my accident, i waited 6 weeks to get a MRI scan and another 6 weeks to get results, at time of getting results i was told i would recieve a letter in post with appointment for pain clinic, still waiting, still in chronic pain, i cannot believe that human beings have to suffer with no treatment whatsoever, i have been told to keep taking pain killers, i think its disgusting to be treated this way and i know it cannot be good for me pumping all these pain killers, there obviously is no other option though until i eventually get appointment for pain clinic.
