"My ongoing gastroenterology problem"

About: Princess Royal Hospital / Gastroenterology Royal Sussex County Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I have been seeing Dr Parnell at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath, Sussex for an ongoing gastroenterology problem. Dr Parnell has been excellent, compared to previous appointments I was given. They were either cancelled or changed, but this has not happened since I changed, as appointments are always kept and he is very caring. I have been given VCE food supplements and am now feeling so much better.

I was also taken into Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton at Christmas in December 2008 with a septic arthritic knee. The doctors said I needed an operation. However, there seemed to be no coordination between the nurses and doctors. The doctor would say that the bandage would need to be loosened and when he asked the nurse she would say that the doctor had not told her about it.
