You said, we did

There was no information on our website regarding the Birmingham Clean Air Zone, which resulted in you receiving a fine.

The website was updated with information regarding the Birmingham Clean Air Zone linking to Birmingham City Council.

You were informed that an urgent physio referral was to be made for you. You have been waiting 4 months. You called the secretary and physio, you were informed the referral had not yet been sent.

We contacted the clinical service support manager and secretary, who then chased up the referral. The therapies team then contacted you and arranged an appointment as soon as possible.

Your appointment had been cancelled and you were not made aware of this.

A new appointment date was arranged at the earliest date possible.

You were challenged about not wearing a mask, even though they were exempt.

An exemption sticker was created, to stop patients from being challenged for not wearing masks.

You have been waiting one month for MRI results.

Imaging secretaries were able to confirm that the imaging had been reported on and an appointment was arranged for the results to be discussed at the earliest date available.
