"I feel there are too many obstacles in the way"

About: Telford referral and quality service (TRAQS)

(as a service user),

1) Requested (after discussion with GP) referral to orthopedic services. Background: Injury/trauma sustained to right side of my body following a fall, July 2010. This resulted in shoulder operation in March 2012, with pain and ongoing disruption to knee and right leg.

2) TRAQS sent me referral to PC Team (Euston Way) where I believe I would be assessed by a GP with an interest in orthopedics, presumably he would liaise with an orthopedic consultant?

3) I contacted TRAQS and asked to be sent an appointment with an orthopedic consultant

4) I feel there are too many obstacles in the way, too many protocols and phone calls.
