"Staff were helpful and quite supportive ..."

About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Staff were helpful and quite supportive this last time I was in and didn,t push me out. The doctors explained things well to patients.

What could be improved

It was not very good that I was left in agonising pain when I ws going to be discharged from EMU. It would have been better if I hadn,t been ignored when I was in the most horrendos pain I have ever had in my life. I got help eventually and got sent to a ward as I was in no fit state to go home though it would have been nice but my body decided it was going to be in agony that day not me.

Anything else?

As I am still suffering with my stomach problem and refluxing I would appreciate some advice. I don,t se the gastroenterologist for another month and don,t know what to do,it has been going on for far too long. How do I get some help? I fear ending in hospital again but would hav an op if its the only way. I don,t know who to see for help. Thanks
