"An absolute disgrace"

About: Lister Hospital

Cannot fault the nurses & social care for my father but as for a certain doctor & his discharge today, an absolute disgrace. I wasn't told what time he would be sent home, no medication was sent home with him, no walking frame (I actually had to go and collect one from the hospital, my father left with a neighbour) his medication was being delivered to his home but as of now (21:55) still not arrived, have been fobbed off to ring the ward he was sent to this morning but the phone just rings & rings.

Response from Lister Hospital

Whilst pleased to read that your father's care whilst in the Lister was good, his discharge home sounds very poor and needs to be investigated. We would really welcome a chance to look in to what happened - would you be happy to email us at generalenquiries.enh-tr@nhs.net so that we can do that for you?
