"Long wait for an appointment"

About: Telford referral and quality service (TRAQS)

(as the patient),

My referral was for physio regarding a shipped disc/sciatica. My GP requested my referral to be urgent. However I cannot get an appointment in my area for five weeks. I realise that this is an NHS problem rather than TRAQS but I consider five weeks of extreme pain to be unacceptable.
