"Received very good care"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

Anything else?

I was admitted over Christmas with a blood clot. It had become worse as my GP could not make an appmt for me and failed to diagnose me over the phone, despite me saying my arm and neck were swollen. Anyway the care I received from all departments at the QMC was brilliant. They knew straight away it was a clot - even before scans confirmed it. Hospital was clean and staff friendly. My only criticism was on my final day, after coming out of Intensive care, I was put on a dementia unit whilst receiving anti cogulants. I am 35 years old and really shouldn't have been put on that ward. I eventually asked to go home and requested injections to do myself at home. Overall very good
