About: Weston General Hospital

Anything else?

I was referred to see a Consultant Urologist by my GP because of some concerns over ongoing medication. I had to do a "Flowtest" into a vessel that was nearly full of urine because the nurse didn't empty it between patients. I then got to see the Consultant who was as usual arrogant, overbearing, dismissive and didn't take the time to read my notes. I have seen this consultant several times in the past and his behaviour towards patients is always the same. We are encouraged to see our GP if you see any trace of blood in your urine, if you get referred to see a Consultant then choose anywhere but not Weston Hospital.
