"Burning sensations in my head"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

(as the patient),

In October 2008 I knocked my head badly on a wrought iron bar. I went to see my GP and had a nine day wait for an appointment at DRI. She sent me there for an examination and x-ray. I waited for three hours to be seen by a junior doctor who looked at my head and said he thought I didn’t require an x-ray. This took approximately three minutes. I am still having problems with head pain and burning sensations. I am now waiting to see a neurologist for a scan. I feel angry that all these months have past and still not had the x-ray or scan.
