"Aftercare"

About: Conquest Hospital

The aftercare n this hospital is dire. My wife was seen by a consultant on the 16/12/2014 and she was informed she would need physiotherapy. It is now 28/3/15 and she is still waiting. Every time we contact the hospital we are informed she is on the waiting list and she will be seen soon. Bearing in mind that her complaint means she is permanently in pain and it effects her mobility I would have thought that the word urgent would have applied.
