"Passing responsibity between hospitals"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital / Emergency Department

(as a service user),

My mother had a fall and either broke or dislocated her shoulder, she has been uneasy on her feet since her 3 mini strokes.

Took her to NSEC who advised we dont do X-rays go to rake lane, who done the x-ray advised it is dislocated and sent her back to cramlington (NSEC) who turns out do have an xray department but would rather have a women in considerable pain in her 60's driven needlessly between 2 hospitals.

How hard is it for one hospital to do asses and then pass the responsiblity?

My mam is in agony and is now wound up on top of the pain as she feels as if the NHS couldnt give a monkeys about her and are just looking after their wait times.
