"Some nursing staff"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

Some nursing staff

What could be improved

Follow up after leaving hospital - It took 5 days before I was diagnosed with a stroke, as that was how long it took before I was given a MRI scan, junior doctors told me I had a headache and it must be related to migraine!!! I am never sick and knew this was something really wrong with me, I then left hospital after 12 days, with promise of an appointment within 2 weeks, I am now told notes were not sent to the secretary and have spent the last week trying to sort an appointment now to be told the Doctor is on holiday for 2 weeks, and I should have some different medication but no-one there to sign the letter for my doctor to give me them!!!!!!!!!!
