from seeing my doctor about lower back pain and pain in both my legs ,and a visit to A&E , where I was told that I required a MRI scan I had to wait 13 weeks for an appointment for a scan which took place on Friday 29th august 2014. it's been 16 working days since the scan and still no sign of any kind of treatment,iam still in a lot of pain in my legs which makes it impossible to return to work .the only treatment my doctor can give me is tablets .I would have expected the NHS to have acted with a small amount of urgency do to the fact that I was working and contributing to both Nat/ins and paye but it seems that no one cares !!
