"i have had several visits for physiotherapy"

I have been referred several times to the Horder for physiotherapy on my knee. I would love to be able to see a doctor here to discuss having an operation here but my GP has insisted on referring me to

Tunbridge Wells Hospital as they say if they refer me to the Horder I wil just be give another course of physio.

I have been very pleased with treatment here and if an operation is needed would much rather come here than go to T Wells.
