I have a torn cartlidge in my right knee, which in the past 10yrs has been operated on twice.
Since the last op in 2008 it has not been right, so having seen my doctor, I went to a mobile clinic at the end of the M67. Three visits confirmed a torn cartidge.
I then arranged an appointment at your hospital. The consultant then wanted to send me for an xray, before even seeing me. I asked the nurse if I could possibly see the doctor first, I explained that a scan had already been taken, he said he could'nt open it, which quite frankly is rubbish. The long and short is, this man would not treat me without conducting his own tests. The same as those tests already carried out. What a waste of my money. According to the consultant everybody at these clinics are wasting thier time. I would like a response please, it is difficult to expain the details like this.
