"Long waiting time for appointment"

About: Ilkeston Community Hospital

Anything else?

am in a lot of pain had medication which does not seem to be working, seen a consultant, being referred for other treatment.

Not happy with having to wait up to about 6 weeks for appointment, and then having to wait even longer for any treatment that may be necessary.

I feel it is not fair that if you have the money to go private you can bee seen virtually straight away.

Still waiting for appointment.
