"Waiting Time"

About: Woodend General Hospital / Elective Orthopaedics

(as a relative),

My partner has been in a lot of pain for seven months. His g.p put him to a&e at first and after two trips there he was diagnosed with osteoarthritis which is as we now know after 6 months of complaining was not the case. He has a labral tear of the hip joint. Only because i have complained and contacted several people has he had an appt and a mri scan from orthopaedics. he has been off work all this time and now is not being paid thanks to the time it takes the nhs to do something.
