"Care superb - lie unacceptable."

About: Watford General Hospital

What I liked

Nursing care was superb. Faultless.

What could be improved

I was made a promise upon assessment by a doctor to be seen by a psychiatrist in hospital during my stay, over part of my condition.

I was lied to by a consultant after 5 days that this was something available in the "community" not the hospital and consequently discharged in my opinion just to gain the bed space.

When a promise is made it must be upheld and deceit not employed by certain staff.

The nurses were very concerned that I had been "fobbed off" as it were.

Anything else?

I am considering alerting the press over this cruel and deliberate deceit/lie.ConsideratePatient careConsultantsDoctorsNursing staff
