After being treated at UHCW for several years with jaw problems, in January I was referred over to Birmingham. I have had appointments at Birmingham Dental Hospital where on the first occasion the consultant didn't turn up and I ended up seeing a dentist! I've had an MRI and got another appointment with the dentist. My problem is with my jaw joints not my teeth! The dentist said I would get an appointment at a Birmingham hospital because I need joint replacement surgery. I received an appointment at city hospital for a date in September then it got cancelled and another appointment made for October. This has now also been cancelled. I now have an appointment given for November which cannot be guaranteed won't be cancelled again. Meanwhile, I am left in constant agony and being told on the phone by the hospital it's not uncommon to wait this long. How does this help me it's been 10 months since my referral from UHCW and I've got nowhere! Disgusting treatment!
