"Fast and effective pain relief ..."

About: King's Mill Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Fast and effective pain relief administered by A & E staff soon after arrival.

What could be improved

Gastroenterology has no specialist consultant. It can take 9 months to see a doctor. Medication has to be requested even though a flare up of a condition has been identified. Risks are not outlined to patients mainly because a perforated bowel is not considered too much of a risk! Patients receive no monitoring whilst on steroid treatment, its up to you to know the side effects etc and contact the hospital accordingly. I could go on and on.........
