"problems with access to physiotherapy"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC

(as the patient),

was referred for physio due to bad back/arms and leg - I have a neuro complaint and the physio was for Non neuro! now I have been told I cannot be treated unless I agree to see neuro rehab - I feel this is completely wrong and unethical as my referral was because I have carpal tunnel, and disc degenaration and the physio asked for permission to contact my GP for dates of last boney xra! I didn't give her permission to discuss my medical history as I wasn't referred for anything other than that listed above! Surely you cannot withhold treatment because you refuse to see a specialist about a complaint that you weren't even referred for? I've been told come back to us your referral is still open once you have seen the specialist. disappointed, extremely angry and frustrated!
