"Aftercare"

About: The Royal Liverpool University Hospital

I was discharged on Monday 18th August from 8X with a drain attached to my wound. I was suppose to be referred to a district nurse but the district nurse is still awaiting my referral. I have rang the ward twice to be told that they would send the referral again. It is now 21st August and the district nurse still hasn't received my referral. I have already been re admitted after my operation due to an infection and I really don't want to have to return, how am I suppose to get my wounds and drain checked if I can't even get the hospital to refer me.
