So I went to the hospital to see the physiotherapist and whilst there I told her that I had been suffering for about 8 months. She asked if my GP had sent me for an x-ray, which she hadn’t. The physio decided that I needed an x-ray, but rather than send me next door to the radiology department, she decided that I had to get my GP to refer me (again) to the hospital and then get the x-ray. She said that it would be faster, however, after speaking to my surgery, they said about 6 weeks. I have fractures that have been bothering me since Feb/March, and still have to wait. The NHS is totally up the wall, and it would seem that no one knows what they are doing.
