What could be improved
The reponse time from having an X ray to the finding being received at the GP was very poor.(7 Days)
During this waiting period this elderly lady I took for an X ray was in pain!! It took a week from having the x ray taken to the GP visiting the patient.
The Dr came out within Hrs of him receiving the results. This lady is now on Oramorph (strong painkiller) having been told she has Osteoporosis. I am sure everyone can come up with reasons why these results take so long - but if you are in PAIN as she was you need treating quicker than a week.
