I have been an in patient now for 10 days and have been extremely satisfied with my treatment. All doctors ,nurses and other staff have been extremely professional, informative, and courteous. On the other hand the discharge policy is extremely slow and innefficirnt. Most patiens sit around for most of the day waiting for paperwork or pharamaceuticals. This entails eating two meals as well as blocking a bed for the day. The patient opposite me (bed 1 ward e14) was told that he could leave at 6 am and was still waiting at 6 pm for his paperwork. In the end he left and was told to come back the next day for his papers. Has the NHS not discovered e:mail? He was also waiting for pharameuticals which he believed were probably paracetomol. As he said he could buy these from Morrison's for 22p. What is it with the Pharmacy?
