kings mill should look as to how a big heart hospital can get it right

where they cant kings mill

this discharge system kings mill hospital has of makin patience wait so long is a farce.

Response from King's Mill Hospital

Thank you for your feedback. We are aware that on occasions patients do have to wait for discharge medication and agree that 5 hours is far too long to wait. We have raised this issue with our medical team who are responsible for prescribing discharge medication to ensure that where a patients discharge is anticipated the medication is written up the day before so that pharmacy have sufficient time to dispense it before the patient is due to leave. Unfortunately at present we are not planning a discharge lounge facility.
