My wife a patient of an orthoepedic surgeon at Lincoln County Hospital, for 3 1/2 years plus, was getting no where, and the local PCT refused to allow injections which were recommended by him . He wanted to carry out an operation on a different part of her back, and we were waiting for the PCT to authorise this, After a lengthy delay, his secretary gave me the number of the PCT, to chase it up, and they contacted The One Health Group, who after 3 weeks gave us an appointment to see one of their surgeons who told us that she needed to see a Neurological Surgeon and would pass her name to his colleague , who turned out to be Mr Abhiney Kamat , He suggested a route to take, which in fact my wife was pleased to agree to, and she had her operation on Dec 20 at Claremont Hospital Sheffield.
For the first time in over 3 years she has lost the pain and tingling in her arm , and has more movement in her neck, shoulder and arms than for many a year . Although the hospital was difficult to get to , the care and attention she received from all members of the staff would be difficult to improve upon, and we both are fully appreciative of their skills .
