For the past 3 yrs I have been under max fax doctor at UHCW for jaw problems after many operations my consultant thinks I now need a jaw joint replacement but this cannot be done at UHCW because there is no funding so I was referred to Birmingham,
after a long painful 4month wait I got an appointment with Birmingham dental Hospital. I attended for my appointment and was called by a dentist who told me I would see the consultant later on. he then sent me for x-rays that I thought would be of my jaw as that's why I was there. after waiting for these then waiting again to as I thought see the consultant I was called by the dentist again and told infact the consultant would not be there at all! He then proceeded to do a dental exam and said I would have to wait again for a further appointment! This was a complete waste of time that my husband lost time off work for as we do not live in Birmingham and are not local. after the excellent care in UHCW this has made me worried at the shoddy care I received on my first visit to a Birmingham hospitAl where I am left in pain and no further forward.
