What I liked
I am a Patient at Addenbrookes Dialysis Unit. I have been on Dialysis 7 years at Addenbrookes. During that time Addenbrookes has performed my medical treatment 3 times a week.
What could be improved
When attending addenbrookes for treatment the dialysis car park is nearly always full with cars that are not attending the dialysis unit.
The lack of doctors available during the evening while patients are on Dialysis is inadequate. This results in poor communication between patients and doctors about my medical condition.
The arrangement of Dialysis Clinics and Dialysis is ridiculus, arranging Dialysis Clinics early in the morning and expecting patients to wait all day until their dialysis appointment in the evening.
Some of the nurses bed side manner could be improved considerably.
Addenbrookes is brilliant if you are a emergency patient, or coming in for a one of medical treatment. However if you are a long term patient suffering from a serious medical condition the quality of care needs to improve.
