"Stay in Hospital last December 2015"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

I had been feeling unwell and had lost quite a lot of weight as a result of not eating properly. Therefore, the GP organised for me to have a blood test at the surgery. That evening, at about 9. 30pm I got a call from the Hospital. The person said I was to come to the Hospital straightaway to A&E, to which I replied "could I not come tomorrow" thinking it was a hoax call. The Doctor then asked if I had had a blood test that day and I confirmed that I had done, so he repeated I was to go to the Hospital immediately and was to go by ambulance. I was told my blood levels were so low they could be causing problems to my heart. The treatment I received was excellent.
