"i was a patient on the childrens ..."

What I liked

i was a patient on the childrens and the staff there were really nice

What could be improved

the orthopaedic service, they did not tell me what they were doing.... it was only until i woke up that i found out they had removed a bone..... and only until i had my pot of that they had 2 metal screws in my foot.

my surgoen dint not even come to see me before my operation, i had no idea what was actally been done it was not explained to me i am only 15 years old

i had been warned about the consultant here by numberous people but i ignored it as i over looked it as it was a minor operation.

when i had my pot of i was given a spilt which pressures over my wound and has caused it to weep and it still has not healed after almost 1 and a half month. i went to the nurse and she said it was an outrage

the after care is terrible... and now i am going to have to have months of physio

i dont reconmend this appartment at all

its a sham
