"OP appt and treatment decision"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

Anything else?

I'm an elderly patient attended in January for a spinal problem where I was not offered the appropriate treatment. My condition has progressed over the next few months and the treatment has now been offered by another tertiary care centre in the country and all be taking place as a matter of an emergency to stall further progress of symptoms. I have suffered as a result of the treatment not being offered.
