"unsatisfactory hospital performance"

About: The Princess Royal Hospital (Telford)

Anything else?

was admitted in hospital on christmas eve, discharged following day, all the while not having being examined physically by any of the doctors. Had to wait for 7 weeks for an ENT appointment, which led to a further appointment in radiography department. Was diagnosed with serious reflux problems, prescribed medication by an ENT conSultant, medicine which undermined by 94% effectiveness of other medications I was taking because the consultant bother from information available in front of him that i was already taking other medications. He had to write to another department which was next door for them to give me another appointment, which Iam still waiting for 4 months from the time i was admitted in the hospital. This is a hospital I would never recommend anybody to attend.
