"It's a nuisance"

About: Telford referral and quality service (TRAQS)

(as the patient),

Newport Cottage Hospital was a waste of time. I went twice the first time, I had five minutes with something on my arm. Then was given exercises. Second time given another sheet with exercises and told that is it.

The exercises made it worse. I asked if they could have it massaged, was told no. I think it’s a nuisance.
