"Still waiting"

About: Pontefract General Infirmary

Gp referred my little boy to see about his foot turning inwards after a year of telling me I was wrong and now been waiting months to be seen and still no sign of appointment :( He had straight legs now they are bowing and he has more falls and bruises its appalling leaving kids so long. Longer goes on more complications are going to arise I just hope my child does not end up disabled as it would have been easily preventable with early treatment..he has lost two centimetres in height due to the bowing already.
