I finally had my first appointment with a physiotherapist at Chapel Allerton Hospital today, following a six month wait from my MRI scan (way too long and in which I ended up paying for loads of treatment myself) and it was such a relief.
The physio was just great. He printed off my scan results and went through each section of it explaining all the terminology and drawing me diagrams to help me understand. He even gave me some advice about what to google if I wanted to search for information myself and got some pictures up on a google search for me to check out while I was there. He was very clear and professional. Just what I needed.
It would be fantastic if advice about what/how to search for information online to help patient's take control and self manage could become the norm for everyone in the future and it's important that staff have the right tools available to them to do it.
