Hi , my doctor yesterday said that the practice can’t give steroid injections because they are waiting for directives from the Welsh government, has anyone been given a steroid injection recently , thank you

    I got one in March,after a refusal in December 🤨because I hadn't seen my consultant, because of covid, in a year. Pretty sure that's not my fault! If I'm asking for a steroid injection it's because I need one. Whether it lasts 2 weeks or 2 months,anything is a bonus, I'd just like to make a fist for a while 🤗
