I am thinking of trying to pay (or do some fundraising) to see Mr Greenslade in Bristol for a pelvic pain assessment. On the NHS , I will wait until about Aug to see him, but I could see him much sooner if I pay. Its not fair, eh : (. My question is this though; I am wanting a pudendal nerve block done by him as ive had one before in London and it worked for 2 mths, but I will need this done on the NHS as would be mega pricey privately. Would paying to see him actually help me get the block done quicker on the NHS, (because I could go on the waiting list much sooner for the nerve block if I see him in April rather than August for the initial consultation), or would I end up waiting just as long anyway. My pain has flared up at the moment and is now unbearable despite very high morphine doses : (
