About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Abysmal discharge sent home with no pain killers nurse had forgotten to put them in meds bag , her sorting the problem out consisted of an out of hours gp phoning me telling me to get a taxi and go and get some from a fax he was about to send when he could find an out of hours pharmacy resulting in a dr and a paramedic turning up saying it was illegal to fax a priscription through they thought I had sent for them when in fact it was this stupid out of hours gp who then told us the wrong place we were sent across town not by a taxi but a friend because we were late back my Carer had been and gone very expensive night for me on top of the pain I was in having just had surgery the previous day and spending hours being rocked about going home late on a Saturday night to no one and no care already told hospital pals I will in future with hold meds to take when nurses are too busy or forget to discharge you with any in the first place !
