My elderly relative frequently goes through Glasgow Royal Infirmary and she has very complex health needs with lots of serious health issues. She is also blind and has a hearing impairment. I feel I am left out the loop of her care, and I frequently get denied updates on treatments.
I am her 24 hour carer and I don't feel it is so wrong to want to have been kept in the loop of her care plan, she cant tell me what doctors tell her, or what tests have been done.
I find this hard as we send our loved ones into hospital as we are concerned to there well being. I don't want to pick fault I understand they are busy people, but I am a worried carer and I go home and worry if only a short time could be taken to give loved ones up dates on relatives progress.
