"Still no word two months after x-ray! (MSK Foot)"

About: University Hospital Lewisham

I had an x-ray of my feet but I haven't heard a word from the doctor or the hospital after that. I've called several times but never managed to get through. I've waited on the line for 45 mins or more. There's no email to contact them and my GP who referred me to this specialist hasn't heard anything either. While this is happening, my feet are hurting more and more and I struggle to walk properly. I'm only 33 years old. I should be able to walk. This is ridiculous!
