"Very Very Frustrating!"

About: Bedford Hospital South Wing

What I liked

The nurses on shand ward were overall very good, howevere the lack of continuity with the doctors left a lot to be desired.

What could be improved

I was discharged from the hospital knowing that I have cancer cells in my stomach which are to be treated by chem starting in two weeks time, however at time of discharge I was and still am unable to eat or drink and am only surviving with the help of self administered morphine. Today I have tried to contact numerous people who have dealt with my case either to be told that they are on holiday or that I should re admit myself via a+e and start the complete process al over again!Cancer and tumoursContinuity of careDrinksCancerDoctorsNursing staff
