After years of going backwards and forwards to my GP I eventually got referred to the pain clinic last month. From the minute I walked in I was greeted by friendly staff who checked my details then offered me a drink straight away. I was seen quickly and the waiting time was literally minutes before the nurse called me through. I felt like I was finally being listened to, the consultant offered me lots of different choices (I'm having an epidural Wednesday) and a trial with a tens machine. I never felt rushed and the consultant knew all about my history of back problems and my MRI results straight to hand. I then went to another room where a fantastic member of staff went through all my up coming procedures thoroughly and was booked in for the tens trial the next day! Again I was met with overwhelming friendliness. What a wonderful asset to the hospital this department is thank you so very much.
