Unaware of the cover up, we left the choice of Specialist with my GP.
After 6 weeks of waiting, we were given excuse after excuse as to why I had not received an appointment.
I had to buy a new bed, blanket supports, spine supports, pillows and sofas, as I could no longer get comfortable sitting or lying down. Every couple of years since my accident, I'd had to buy new beds/sofas but this time it was different, the cord tethering had made everything so very much worse.
I asked Professor Van Dellen about what looked like growths, attached to the walls of my subarachnoid space. He told me several times and kept changing the subject each time I asked, that this was simply cerebral spinal fluid.
This was a blatant lie as I now know they are Arachnoiditis and Arachnoid adhesions.
I also asked whether the Syrinx walls could fail or burst. Again he said no but I've since found medical papers showing such a thing.
Not that my medical records would have helped of course! Most of them have been illegally destroyed or witheld, despite Laws saying they should be kept, due to my Learning Difficulties and Brain Injury!
Yet my full spine had been MRI'd by Salisbury Hospital, it was on the original MRI images we'd obtained, that clearly showed a free flowing Cauda Equina and a bulging disc at L4/5. But these were now missing from the disc. Missing to cover up the disc eruption into my spinal column that was misdiagnosed as swine flu. Why? because it had caused my spinal cord to tether. We had inadvertently written on the original disc and damaged it and had to get a new disc from Salisbury that morning.
The first thing Professor Van Dellen told me when I asked if he would take me on a patient, was that HIS FIRST DUTY WAS TO PROTECT THE NHS budget.
I believe Prof Van Dellen hadn't wanted to see me, hence the six weeks delay. I believe he didn't want to become involved in the cover up.
This is a deliberate ploy to put you off and frighten you, to stop you in your tracks. It also tells you that they are lying and even if you did pay them they would still lie.
Prof Van Dellen wrote a letter to my GP stating ‘Syrinx patients simply need reassurance’!
We thought this strange as he must have known it would damage the disc.
Prof Van Dellen very cleverly, did not write what he'd told me, that my syrinx was idiopathic. He kept out of that one! He also side stepped the disc eruption causing my spinal cord to tether. Saying it was a developmental change, ie., disc danage now becoming a disc eruption from the damage in the accident. He clearly didn't want to become embroiled in this fraud and cover up.
So I paid to go to a Private GP, Dr Graff, at Nuffield Hospital Bournemouth, in desperation.
Completely unaware that most of the cover up of my injuries was done by Poole NHS Hospital Dr's who worked from the Bournemouth Nuffield. I actually saw most of them in a private capacity as experts for my Injury Claim at the Nuffield.
Dr Graaf then told me I wouldn't be able to see Professor Van Dellen again. He was now working exclusively for BUPA.
Which meant Dr Gregory, Neurologist, would cover up all my spinal injuries again!
We paid £250 for a 30 minute Consultation with Dr Gregory. In which the same happened as with Dr Lovett his new associate at Salisbury. Sorry I cannot discuss your accident, before entering the room of course! Then the standard lie, these things are idiopathic, it was not caused by your accident.
How can a Neurologist say it wasn't because of my accident if they refuse to hear of the accident or what occured after?
Dr Gregory then told me I shouldn't be paying to go private, he would be happy to take me on as a patient.
BUT only at Poole Hospital, not Bournemouth! Why? Because he would be dragging the cover up over to include yet another hospital. I think it's the same reason the Neurosurgeons at the Spinal Unit in Salisbury refused to see me. Knowing it was a cover up from my accident, they didn't want to be involved.
Dr Gregory lied to my face, manipulated me into going back to Poole Hospital and took £250 off me in the process.
All so he could misdiagnose me as having an idiopathic syrinx and cover up my old spinal injuries for his new employer. Poole Hospital.
Dr Graaf at the new Nuffield GP centre, directed me to him to enable the Nuffield and Poole Hospital to keep their fraud and negligence covered up.
How can anyone be this corrupt?
