"Hospital misjudgement & bad advice"

About: University Hospital Of North Tees / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

Finally granted mri scan. Done at north tees. I persuaded them to admit me. Discharged the next day after no treatment. Advised to walk. Every footstep was agony. Spoke to a private surgeon. He had mri results emailed to him. He said I need surgery. Urgently! No private health insurance meant it had to be self funded. Not worked since may. Today I am thousands of pounds down and have a permanent disfigurement in my spine. I'm not throwing in the towel and am determined to get my money back.
