My 15-year-old son has a blood disorder so has been referred for further investigation.
I received a letter from TRAQS in November because you hadn't heard from me regarding booking an appointment. To be honest, I was totally confused, I was told by the doctor I would get an appointment through the post. I called the number and was informed that I would be able to have an appointment in either Walsall or Stafford.
I live in Shropshire so all my sons care notes would be no way local. I explained this to the gentlemen (who was really helpful) who said he would refer me to Shrewsbury, delaying my sons appointment.
My doctor had advised me to get more blood tests done so these would be ready for the appointment but this is nearly a month ago, so at a cost to the NHS these will no doubt have to be completed again.
What a waste of time and NHS funds.
