"the attitude of the doctors and ..."

About: Addenbrooke's Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

the attitude of the doctors and their explanations

What could be improved

nursing attitudes

Anything else?

i came to addenbrookes for a transplant but unfortuneately it did not go ahead due to problems , however when i was in the ward i was put on an insulin pump to lower my blood sugars, unfortuneately as i was promised a bm reading every 15 mins and this did not happen i was allowed to go "hypo" and nearly passed out . if it hadn.t been for my relatives persisting nothing would have been done. what may i ask would have happened if i had gone hypo whilst in theatre, god only knows
