"I have been attending this hospital for..."

About: Rochdale Infirmary

What I liked

I have been attending this hospital for 15 years in the pain clinic. I have the injections in my back every 4 months I am not pain free but have a better quality of life after attending. My injection should have been in August but I am unable to get to see the Dr for at least another 4 months. The reason for this is that funding has been taken away from the Dr who works late nights weekend and any other times there is a free slot. This Doctor in dedicated to the care and treatment of patients and with funding will do any extra clinics I have always defended this hospital and until this I have never been let down by the NHS. Please give funding so I can have a better quality of life, at the moment I'll be lucky to see him by Xmas

Anything else?

I can't get through to PALS and they haven't rang me back....................
