"Delay in discharge"

About: Derriford Hospital

During this time she just waited, fully dressed and keen to go home. This is very poor and needs looking at

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us. I was very sorry to read of the delays caused to your daughters discharge medication. I have asked the ward team to look into these issues and when I have received their response back I will respond back to you.

In the meantime if you would like to get in touch with me please email me at claire.jukes@nhs.net.

With best wishes
