"Knee specialist"

About: Trafford General Hospital

I went to Trafford general yesterday 31st of march 2016 to see a knee specialist for a scan that I never received they were trying to force me to bend my knee even though they told me it's locked completely and I have a meniscus tear they tried to put anesthetic injections into into it without even asking me I screamed out in pain for them to shout and swear at me and call me soft after waiting an hour and 10 minutes past my appointment time and then to be told to get back outside in the waiting room left in floods of tears from anger and frustration and not knowing what was happening just to be referred to another hospital and have an even worse experience there I'm furious
