"Fine until you start asking questions."

About: The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (King's Lynn)

What I liked

Very poor renal consultants. Fine until you start asking questions and would like to help yourself. Never consulted about lifestyle, diet or fitness. Once It was clear I wanted to be proactive in my renal care I was given the cold shoulder.

Peterborough renals services was equally as poor, in fact they said they did not even need to see me any more. I have been under a nephrologist since 1993 and quite rightly so.

Appalling. And once again doctors/consultants should be given an annual MOT to prove competence.

This complaint does NOT refer to the dialysis unit of which I have no experience.

What could be improved

The cionsultants should do what they are paid to do and should involve patients in the care plans.
