Formal complaint lodged following 2 incidents where Doctor advised patient that they were not happy about the route "chosen" for admission to IRH! ! Gp referred from Dunoon to attend A&E with letter stating condition. Rapid deterioration over a space of 3 weeks precipitated seeking advice on the way forward privately at Ross Hall Hospital. Possible diagnosis given however further tests recommended. Breathlessness increased - Gp sought advice from IRH admitted. Feel Dr overstepped a professional boundary and breached patient confidentiality by discussing condition in full earshot of other patients and relatives. There is a quiet room available and patient could have gone there with Dr. This has caused undue stress not just to patient but to relatives as well!
