"my epidurals have stopped due to funds!"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Q A was good! But now the clinic has closed down, I get nothing other than a piece of paper,saying look on the internet on how to deal with pain . I have dealt with it since I had to give up nursing at the young age of 51 yrs, my pain is very bad, yet I'm told you have to apply for funding via your G P, it was refused for facet joint L 3, !! Not on is it having paid my stamp, my opinion is, they don't care anymore, and left to suffer when there is something out there that helped!! Me Very Much, it's agony to even make my bed Sheilamary 2014
