"That I was fit enough to leave ..."

About: St James's University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

That I was fit enough to leave earlier than expected

What could be improved

Communications between Nursing staff & delivery of medication

Anything else?

I had to wait 5 hours for medication to be delivered to the ward from the pharmacy on discharge from the hospital. Ridiculous considering I could have walked there in 5 minutes had I been allowed to collect it myself!

Response from Involvement Facilitator, NHS Leeds

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at St James's Hospital on the NHS Choices website.

I was sorry to hear that you feel the communication between nursing staff and delivery of medication could be improved and that you had to wait 5 hours for your medication to be delivered to the ward.

We shall pass your comments on to the staff concerned.

Thank you once again.
