"More training should be given for..."

About: Southport & Formby District General Hospital

What I liked

ambulance care was outstanding.

What could be improved

general care and the belief I wasnt meant to be there. Never felt my injury was serious enough as the doctor kept saying he didnot know what was wrong. I told them I was allergic to Morphine and was then given a several morphine based tablets. My son complained my stomach was burning and once again was told they didnot know why. My pain level was diagnosed as 9/10 and yet within half an hour after been given pain killers was ttold to go home and await a physio. It was clearly seen by every-one I was unable to walk.

Anything else?

I have since been diagnosed with herniated dics in my spine and one in my neck and awaiting surgery but will be going to Walton neurology.ComplaintsSurgeryPatient careNeurologyAmbulanceBurnsDoctorsPhysiotherapists
