What I liked
Note. The date above is not applicable due to having had an ongoing issue with the hospital since June 2010.
Had minor op in June 2010. Surgery was rushed - twenty minutes for an op which (now I'm informed) should have been under a general anesthetic. Surgeon made serious error, resulting in permanent nerve damage. Couldn't claim compensation. Have never had any form of apology or even any accurate feedback as to causation. As a result, had breakdown, lost job and am unable to use my right hand for periods of longer than ten minutes. Fighting for solution but staff unhelpful, can't even get answers from PALS. All I've been given is tablets. Fought for two years for an MRI scan, now only to find that I have been referred to a Bristol hospital.
The NHS is an awful service. I would advice anyone not to have an operation in Weston-super-mare hospital.
What could be improved
And much better communication. And do not lose notes.
The excuse is funding. It's not working.
