maybe give their transport department a call, i think they said that it's not only for people with mobility problems but for those that are very poor and so just cant afford to pay the costs of transport.... their phone number is 020 8954 2300 and their email is: email@example.com
and their webpage is: http://www.rnoh.nhs.uk/patients-familie ... -transport
cant remember if you use a chair but i get transport without question cos i use my wheelchair....
i'm being sent to the assessment team to go on their 3 week pain management course, and being sent to their shoulder specialist. I'm doing a rather comprehensive physio program already so the consultant i saw said i wouldnt really get any extra help from them, but i shouls get tons of help with the pain management side of things.... i really hope the assessment goes well as i could really do with the help.
has anyone seen their shoulder specialists separate from the inpatient program? my left shoulder is very bad and dislocates whenever i move my arm (and dangles out of joint so it's constantly subluxed) i've been doing physio on it since 2007 but have seen no improvement in the joint stability- the muscles around my shoulder are a lot stronger but thats it, no other improvements. i'm hoping that i'm just not able to activate a muscle that once worked will help stabilise the joint.... dont want an operation, that's kinda scary!
but wont know for sure till i've been seen by the specialists so gonna try and forget about it all now!
