"Malfunction of the Burton Clinic"
About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent Burton -on- Trent DE13 0RB
My wife's pre booked operation was cancelled 4 hours before arrival, without explanation.
The peration was re-arranged.
The care my wife received was no way comparable to a previous visit some three years earlier. The staffing on the Burton Clinic does not appear to be as good as it was, now using agency staff. My wife' s catheter was not checked and over flowed she also had to ask for the anti blood clotting injection prior to discharge as it was overlooked.
Neither Consultants, nurses or clerical staff seem to be openly willing to explain what is going on at the Clinic, a wall of collective silence or fear seems to be in place.
We have picked up rumours that beds have been taken out of use in the main hopital and that patients are avoiding Stafford Hospital thereby putting additional strain on Burton hospital which means that the Burton Clinic is being used as an overflow for general NHI use thereby defeating its prime function.
