"In need of some help with the pain"

About: Telford referral and quality service (TRAQS)

(as the patient),

I have pain constantly in my left knee, especially at night when I'm in bed, my knee feels very weak when walking.

I take pain killers all the time. I'm also feeling so much pain in my left hip, I don't know if it's all one pain from hip to the knee or separate.

But I'm in need of some help to access what the pain is because it's getting worse.

Response from Cathie McKenzie, Patient Advisor, TRAQS, NHS Telford and Wrekin CCG

Thank you for writing to us regarding your condition.

It is not clear from your comments whether you have received an appointment from TRAQS and therefore I am unable to comment on your condition. I assume that your GP has made a referral on your behalf but it is not clear what action has been taken. If you would care to contact me on 01952 580441, I will investigate your case to determine as to whether there has been any undue delay in actioning your referral.

Thank you for drawing this to our attention.
