I went to A&E on Friday night, 29/05/2015, with bladder pain and Back pain. The A&E service and communication were second to none. Then they transferred me to urology ward (624). I have waited 2 days to do CT scan to find out what is wrong with me, after 2 day they find out in scan I have got (Bowl inflammation) and wait for another 2 day for specialist to come for examination! After all these time the doctor came and visit me for 2 minute and told me you can go home, you have got (Bowl Inflammation), we will put you on antibiotic and painkiller (codeine) then we will send you hospital appointment letter to come back for camera treatment.Now my antibiotics finished and I have got lots of pain in my bladder, Back, and my hips (which is moving) and I haven't heard anything from hospital and I know because of lack of communication in ward (624), the nurses trying to be very friendly, but there is lack of training! they don't communicate with patient after doctor decision unless you ask them more then 10 time! to be honest (624) need to be visit as a patient then you will find out what a joke going around! I am still suffering with pain and looks like I have to wait God knows how long to get letter from them. I think hospital is massive but management and training is a joke. I suggest send all the nurses to city hospital to be retrained because hospital it self its not look like massive and brand new, But the service when you are there as a patient is second to non.
