Received MRI scan at Golden Jubilee Hospital in June 2016.
After waiting 6 weeks for results I telephoned Orthopaedics Department at Glasgow Royal Infirmary to enquire about scan results. I was told that a letter would be sent soon.
At the end of July I received a letter from Orthopaedics at Glasgow Royal saying I had been referred to Neurosurgical Department at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. This letter was dictated on 21st June, yet was only transcribed on 25th July.
Last week we contacted the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and was told that the waiting time for an appointment was 12 weeks, and that I had only been on their list for one week.
On 22nd August I again received the same letter as that of the end of July, only this time the date dictated was 17th August and the date transcribed the 26th July.
It therefore appears that there has been an administrative delay in having my case referred to Neurosurgery, and that I am having to endure a longer period in pain due this error by Orthopaedic Administration at Glasgow Royal.
