What I liked
the nursing staff tried their hardest to make me as comfortable as possible and can't fault them at all
What could be improved
the doctors were useless, they didn't answer any of my questions and felt they didn't listen to me at all, i am from a medical background so have some knowledge of what i was being treated for but given that i was also a scared patient and this wasn't addressed by the doctors. as i was in hospital over the bank holiday period i was upset to find that my family who had driven for 2 hours to come and see me couldn't get a drink or food from anywhere as everywhere was shut!
i was told by my doctors that they were happy for me to go home with strong pain relief and to come back on the monday for a scan, this has not happened and when i phoned up i was told it could take 5 weeks! i don't think its very fair to discharge someone and 'fob' them off by making promises they know will not happen and leave a patient in pain (even with using the pain relief) at home to wait, i was in the hospital for 2 days and didn't actually get treated for anything and was there was pain control but how can i control the pain if i still do not know whats wrong????
