I requested a review of my current treatment for a longstanding lower back pain condition. The appointment arrived very quickly and was within a few weeks of requesting - excellent.
On attending the OPD, the seating had been altered and consisted of a bank of interlinked seats, all at the same level and of the same size.
For me it was an issue sitting on this seating comfortably and then getting up from it comfortably without causing discomfort.
The doctor and nurse in the clinic were marvellous, attentive and the doctor listened to me and was able to suggest an alternative treatment.
I did mention the seating at the consultation time, as the seats in the consulting room were also not conducive to pain sufferers, people with mobility problems etc.
