The Traqs team were very quick to respond, polite and provided a very good service.
Unfortunately, they were then let down by the poor attitude of the hospital's consultant when I saw him in November. The consultant asked almost no questions about my lifestyle yet decided that my foot pain was due to my flat feet rather than unassociated tendon or skeletal damage due to the sports I take part in. He spent less than 3 minutes with me, it would have been less than one if I hadn't asked questions.
For a consultation about foot pain, I was amazed that the consultant didn't pay any close attention to my feet, he didn't sit me on the bed to feel my feet, despite me being able to pinpoint my pain to a very specific area.
Very poor service yet again from the NHS.
