"Surgeons' failure to act"

About: Ninewells Hospital / Neurosurgery

(as the patient),

I was losing strength & feeling in my limbs to the extent I began falling over & eventually could not walk at all.

A consultant neurologist diagnosed degenerative disks in my spine & said I needed surgery asap & admitted me to Ninewells.

Neurosurgeons refused to operate despite my condition continuing to deteriorate. I eventually managed to get the surgery done at another hospital.
