My wife had a kidney operation at Northampton General hospital, went to the Willow ward then was moved on to the Hawthorne ward.
My wife was discharged from the Hawthorne ward then whilst picking up her medication there was an electrical fault and the dispensing computer broke down. We had to wait for over 3 hours to get her medication, surely they could have done this by hand? or had a procedure in place.
It was uncomfortable for my wife who had just had a kidney taken and wanted to get home.
