I am at a loss, I live in Manchester and for well over 3 years (nearly four) have been in pain with my teeth, and no matter who I have contacted have they been unable to help me.
I have sent letters and complaints to everyone I can think of or find, none of which has resolved the problems or the pain I am in.
I have now suffered with tooth pain for over three years, and most would find 3 days too much to suffer, I am now at the end and can take no more and can see only one escape from the suffering.
I was referred to the Manchester dental hospital over 3 years ago, but ever since have gone around in circles, no one seems to care. With endless delays and promises, I was told last year that 4 teeth needed to be removed and would be done urgently, I was sent for assessment for the operation, that was then moved to the end of January, then I was told now 7 teeth needed to be removed, they wanted to send me an appointment for another assessment I protested and was seem the same day, but then they said I needed a ECG, now they have said it is 2 months more before I get that, then it will be another wait for another appointment each time months pass of suffering, and will soon be 4 years since I was first seem.
If I was a dog I would have been kindly put to sleep to stop the suffering, but as I am a human I am just left suffering lying in pain day after day, night after night, taking endless pain killers and antibiotics. Why should I have to take legal action to get NHS treatment?
I have no energy to keep fighting any more, and as a last resort I wrote to the PM but no reply, who can I turn to? please?
