"They dont know a thing"

I have attended this hospital and I asked them about my neurological condition called "Dropfoot". This means my left foot drags behind me, causing me to fall and walking up stairs is difficult without a bannister. This hospital said it was probably nothing more than the tablets I was on. No I said, This is a known neurolgical condition. No it isnt said this hospital. I have letters now from the John Radcliffe Hospital, The Royal Berkshire Hospital, and my GP all who confirmed that I am correct, and that I do have dropfoot. I will start physio in just over a month. Thankfully, this will not be done at this clueless hosptial.
