Had a back problem in jan 2013 waited 5 and half month to see a back specialist . In the mean time my employer paid for a MRI scan I got to see this back specialist who was very nasty when I asked should I be at work they told me 90 present of the population had what I had I asked again was it wise for me to return to work while I was waiting for a injection they said they would do . Because I asked this question they asked me was I questioning them and if so they would take me off the list and I could go else wear I sobbed and came out very upset . In June 2013 I received my injection this specialist was very nice it was a Sunday morning and I looked back and thought well they must have just had a bad day I thanked them for what they had done and left very happy they told me they would see me in clinic six wks later . My injection worked I had three month worth very little pain . In October 2013 my pain was returning I had returns to work in the June so I rang their office someone told me no appointment had been made for me to see them in near future my doctor had to get in touch I was in agony I did get appointment for February 2014 crawled in they asked if pain was much better I told them it was worst and could I have operation they were very abrupt and just said no if injection had not worked nothing they could do they have taken me off their list and referred me to a pain clinic but two month waiting list . I am now in the process of losing my job and my life is not worth living I am 52 yrs of age and never been out of work payed my ni and work for NHS and feel as if I have been put on the scrap heap this person should get some training in people skills I will be taking this further and would never use city of sunderland hospital again
