when been discharged from hospital after a short stay i was given a discharge letter/note i was told a copy would be sent to my GP by email/e letter the same day no such e letter was sent to my GP in the end after been home from hospital for 7 days i phoned my GP they had to chase down the e letter plus another letter from the department i was very shocked at the lack of communication from the department to my GP surgery . it also said on my discharge letter id been given medications except it had medication down that i did not receive or was not given at all ,when i told the nurse i was told it was a misprint don't worry about it .i was shocked by this as if my GP saw this information then it may be assumed i would not need this medication for some time if i had been given it from the hospital only i didnt have it did I no it was a miss print so why did' nt they just reprint it correctly then ? i have tryed to speak to someone about the above an continue to try :( i am very disappointed in the above these things do have an impact on things ! sometimes good or bad :(
