Does the Irish NHS allow you to access NHS treatment in England?
That would also be my first thought. Can you access nhs care in England? If not I can certainly give you a quote for private treatment but I would first need to see all investigations you had to decide what type of surgery would be indicated in your case.
You’re clearly on the waiting list at your hospital in Northern Ireland.
It sounds as though you have waited an unreasonable length of time .
I suggest you write to the Hospital CEO
