"Waiting for Physio appointment"

About: Poole General Hospital

As a patient whom has experienced balance problems, pins and needles and although balance isn't as bad now, I sometimes get slight hand tremors now, I'm glad my mri came back clear from what the doctor said but I still don't seem to get any help with my balance, still waiting for a physio appointment. The amount of waiting I've done is ridiculously long and has caused me to feel depressed. I found the neurologist helpful and the mri team but the lack of communication gets me down. The hospital is clean and the appointment itself wasn't a long wait so it's not all bad.
