I am waiting nearly nine months for spinal pain killing injections, from Tallaght Hospital and the recommended wait suggested by the National Treatment Purchase Scheme is 8 months. I forwarded a letter from my G P. in March 2013, and I got an appointment by telephone from Tallaght Hospital for a Consultation with a Doctor in November 2013, who incidentially stated he was only seeing me once! Even thought I was referred for spinal injections by him, I have not seen any Orthopaedic Spinal Consultant, in Tallaght Hospital! I am still waiting for an app for the spinal pain killing injections? So I am waiting for treatment from March 2013 until the present, the 17th August 2014, which is 18 months, been equal to - (one year and a half).... Is this what the Health Services call treatment, or is this a vision of futuristic non treament by the Health Services?
