"pain managment appointment"

About: Stamford & Rutland Hospital

Having been referred by my GP in April I was finally given an appointment on July 28th. Having spent about 10 minutes in the room with the Dr I was told they would refer me for acupuncture and I would hear in about 4 weeks. As yet I have not heard a thing and Its now 8 weeks. In total it has been 24 weeks since the referral and still no treatment.
