About: The Great Western Hospital

I visited the neurology dept last year with some problems that i had been left with after a disc replacement in my neck.only to be told it was stress (stupid suggestion) i was put on medication which over time i trebled,this did nothing.this was all done private so wasn't cheap.i am now trying to sort this out on the nhs as i'm sure if i contact the consultant to say the medication didn't work they would charge me another £250 to put me on something else,So all i can say is unless you are loaded then stick to the nhs.
