What I liked
I could park at the Hospital, although this was extreely expensive.
What could be improved
Information on y illness and how this would be treated.
Waiting time to be admitted.
Also visited Gastroenterology Department over a period of 1 year and found this to be an appalling lack of interest in my illness.
When awaiting vital test results for Crohn's the Doctor was so far behind with his appointment times that he past my case to another Doctor who I had not met. The test results were still not available after waiting for 8 weeks and i eventaully received these via a telephone conversation and not with the Doctor I was seeing.
Added to which, I was on Steroids at the time and had lost a stone in weight and yet the letter written by the Doctor who had seen me instead of the usual Doctor commented in a letter to my GP that I had looked well. This information was more than wrong, it was wholly misleading.
I refused any further appointents at this Hospital and have asked for a referral to a London Hosptial which I have more confidence that they will diagnose my condition and treat appropriately.
