"Poor communication"

(as the patient),

I was told I would get community social care support to help me have a bath. None came.

I was told I could have physio at a sister hospital. They don't know about me.

I have now gone back to Good Hope so I don't need help there. They sent my notes to the Manor but they didn't have them. This was a real concern but it is sorted now. I will stay with Good Hope.

I was promised someone would come to get me a seat for the bath, but I've not fallen yet so I'm not fussed and my injury is healing.

Should be ok now thanks Richard. Once Physio at GH knew about my situation they did everything possible to sort me out as soon as possible.
