Generally there was nothing about the service that was bad, from admission to discharge- all very slow, but purely down to the chronic understaffing throughout the NHS. The procedure was well explained to me and went very well, the after care was good although these days it's vital for the patient to take much of the responsibility for their treatment and needs. Sadly, all went wrong at discharge when the pharmacy lost my prescription. This took hours to be discovered as the Pharmacy are so notorious for being slow that it wasn't even queried until after they'd shut. This department needs a huge overhaul as beds are being blocked daily by patients who have been discharged but wait literally all day to get their meds (previous visit- discharged 8.30 am, got meds 3.30pm!).
