"No scan booked and patient had to wait an entra long time"

About: Northern General Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

I went to the Northern General Hospital on to Brearly Ward with dizziness and possible stroke. I found the nursing staff very helpful and efficient.

I did however find that there was a lack of follow up from the doctors.

I was admitted on a Tuesday, saw a doctor on the Wednesday and he said to have a C.T. scan. I then saw a doctor on the Thursday who asked me why I was still there, he said he would find out why and get back to me. He never came back, so I asked the sister who inquired and said that no scan had been booked. She then booked a scan for Friday and I then came home after the scan.

I would like to thank Pat Bellamy and the staff on Brearly ward.
