"I was referred to Sutton to see ..."

About: Sutton Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was referred to Sutton to see a specialist for bleeding from the bowel.

The room I was examined was tiny and primitive and barely enough room for me the specialist and nurse to fit in to.

Samples and blood tests were taken. I was referred to EDH for a Colonsocopy on 21.1.2009.

On this date I attended EDH. They had not received any notes or results of the examination/samples taken at Sutton Hospital.

I have phoned the Derby Centre today and they too have not received the results from Sutton Hospital.

When I tried to phone Sutton Hospital the phone was not answered despite repeated attempts.

I am in fear that I might have bowel cancer and this incompetency and unprofessionalism at Sutton Hospital is adding to my anxiety.

What could be improved

Size of treatment rooms

Anything else?
