"Unable to get physiotherapy after MS relapse"

About: Calderdale PCT / Community physiotherapy

(as the patient),

I booked to see the Calderdale physio, she cancelled due to illness, not seen or heard anything since, useless.

6 months on I could do with it again, but is it worth a phone call?

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. I am really sorry you have had a poor experience and that they didn't rearrange your appointment.

This service is provide for us by Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and I will pass your comments on to them so they can look into the matter.

What I would suggest you can do is either:

- If you have the contact details of the service, ring them and explain your situation and get a new appointment.

or if this isn't possible

- Contact your GP to get a new referral to the service.

I hope you get a resolution to this problem soon.
