"Orthopaedic Department"

About: Warrington Hospital

My wife has back problems over 14 years with various treatment over the years injections etc at the Warrington Hospital On the 30th September 2016 had an appointment with the Orthopaedic Department at 09:45 am, she did not get seen till 10:55 am.

My wife and I sat down to talk to the Clinician and their remarks were you only got 5 min to discuss any problems. That was it we was out in 5 min and not interested of what treatment they just had done private over the last 4 months and what further treatment was required recommended by the same doctor. I guess its when people are over sixty your on the scrap heap by NHS and dont want to spend any money on people at our age. I guess that if we was that late for the appointment it would have been canceled.
