"Long wait for results from City hospital"

About: City Hospital campus / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

Following a lumbar spine X-ray I have now been told I will wait eight weeks for a result due to a new computer system. This was not communicated prior to the X-ray. I was not told at any point of the wait. I was told in fact it would be seven days. After waiting seven days and subsequently chasing the X Ray I am now told that X-rays taken on the 8th of December now being looking at. It is now February! ! I sincerely hope the CQC are reading this as this is inadequate.

Thanks for getting in touch. I’m sorry to hear that we did not clearly communicate the next steps after your x-ray and for the long wait for your results. Please can you kindly contact me directly and I will look into this further for you so that we can each understand the cause of the delay. You can call me 0115 9249924 ext. 61767 or email laura.griffiths2@nuh.nhs.uk.
