"Long wait for an injection"

About: Shropshire and Staffordshire Telford referral and quality service (TRAQS)

(as the patient),

I went to see a Doctor in October. I have a bad shoulder (from the end of Aug). He told me I needed an injection or physiotherapy, waiting time approx. 6-10 weeks. I now get an appointment for Jan 2015, a long time, also an injection at the start of December 2014. I don’t understand why you have to wait so long for an injection.

Dear Open293

Thank you for your feedback.

As all comments on Patient Opinion are anonymous I am unable to look into your concerns in detail.

If you would like me to investigate the delay please contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service who will be able to take more details to enable me to check what happened with the referral.

thank you for taking the time to respond.
