What I liked
Unfortunately - not very much. Though nursing staff good.
What could be improved
I have a good knowledge of my condition because I need to have. A&E Doctor seemed incapable of understanding the programming of my pacemaker - telling me I was wrong - when in fact I was correct.
Consultant with juniors talked around the bed about me as though I was absent or stupid or just a lump of meat that happened to be on the bed. Consultant did not seem to like juniors asking me questions directly.
Not seen by any of the cardiology team, though a cardiac condition - dealt with as 'General Medicine' matter.
Discharged home to attend the hospital who had previously treated me, where soon after pacemaker was replaced.
