"spinal surgeon"

About: Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

I saw a consultant on the 19/6/15 who referred me to a spinal surgeon... so an internal transfer... the spinal surgeon has still not even looked at my referral... i think over 3 weeks to triage a new patient is far too long.. some of us want to get health issues sorted asap and get on with life!!

I am sorry that you have waited for your referral to be triaged. Can I suggest that you contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 0121 685 4128 for assistance, as they may be able to resolve this for you.
