"nhs injustice"

About: Spire Liverpool Hospital

Anything else?

i had an appointment to see someone at the orthopaedic outpatients department. the afternoon before the appointment in the evening i was informed that due to my bmi level being too high they would not accept my referral, this has nothing to do with my weight and i should have been informed with more notice. I have now had to organise a private appointment with the same hospital and have been accepted for that. This seems so wrong and it should not be acceptable.

it is disgusting the way i have been treated, i have worked all my life and contributed to the nhs and to be told i cannot be treated under the nhs but am accepted as a private patient is just not acceptable especially as i contracted mrsa at an nhs hospital and my symptoms have come from that, that need treating now.
