Response from Buckland Hospital

I think we need to understand more about what has gone wrong for you here.

Please would you contact PALS (the Patient Advice and Liaison Service) so that they can look into all this for you to see what has been going wrong and to see if they can get you an appointment more swiftly.

You can either email at ekh-tr.PALS@nhs.net or telephone 01227 783145 or 01227 864314 (you may have to leave a message on the answerphone.

it might be very important to have the MRI scan first to see what is at the bottom of your healthcare problem so that the correct treatment plan can be given to you.
