"Treatment withdrawn, this is not acceptable"

About: Telford referral and quality service (TRAQS)

(as the patient),

I was not very happy that funding for my treatment has been withdrawn without my consultation. I have been offered alternative acupuncture treatment. However I have experienced delay prior to my first appointment and now await a similar delay until my acupuncture treatment starts. If the decision makes experiencing the same pain I do then they may have withdrawn funding so quickly.

I realise the right to delay a decision on the effectiveness of my acupuncture treatment until I have taken the treatment. Overall the way my treatment has been withdrawn and the time until my new treatment starts is totally unsatisfactory and not acceptable. I hope my comments are taken on board.
