"Mixed experience of walk-in x-ray service"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham

I attended the x ray department about a fortnight ago following a shoulder problem and am still waiting for my results. I have had to ask the surgery to chase up (twice) and still do not have the results. I'm disappointed with this as I have been in quite a lot of pain and unable to sleep. The staff are great in this unit, the facilities also good and very clean, but the results not delivered quickly enough for a leading hospital. If I had a similar problem, I might consider going through a different route.
