About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

My mother was admitted to LRI after she passed out at home. She was treated for a chest infection (which she didn't have) and discharged after 2 days. My father took her on a 5 day holiday with the consent of the hospital consultant. Upon her return home she was re-admitted and the doctors had no idea what was wrong with her. She was discharged 2 weeks later with a consultant saying she had gout. She has been admitted for the third time today with D V T. It took for her GP to make a home visit to work out what was wrong with her.
