"complaint about a doctor in a and e"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

Went in with a od. The doc spent more time talking to my cpn than me. Didn't come back to see me for two hour even after me requesting on 6 different time. Then all he came and said was that I could go home. No bloods only had obs check twice and nothing else. Tell you what a waste of nhs money that was.

Response from North Tyneside General Hospital

Dear Sir / Madam, Thank you for sharing this with us . It is so important that we hear about any shortfalls in our care so that we can learn and improve. I am really sorry to hear about the difficulties that brought you into hospital. I am also sorry and disappointed to learn that we have failed to involve you in discussions about your care in the way you would have liked. Unfortunately it is impossible for me to comment more on the care you have received without knowing who you are. Whilst your post remains anonymous I dont have any other details to act on. I'd be very grateful if you would come back to me directly on annie.laverty@nhct.nhs.uk so that I can undertsand more about what happened and which staff were involved in your care. With thanks, Annie
