About: Northwick Park Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


Anything else?

I suffered sciatica for months and my GP arranged for me to have an MRI scan. This showed that I had a cyst on my scaitic nerve.

So I was referred to a consultant who told me they didn't have any pictures so I would have to have another MRI scan. Just what sort of people do you employ there? repeat an expensive scan - I don't think so. I informed my GP and the consultant was duely reprimanded.

As for me I had to suffer another 7 months unnecessarily before getting immediate traeatnment at Bushy Spire Hospital. I never did like Northwick Park Hospital - Now I hate it.
