"I was admitted to the channel ..."

About: William Harvey Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted to the channel day unit on the 28th March 2008 in the minor opperation room in having injections in my stomach. very low down in my abdomen. i liked the fact the nurse there held my hand as i'm scared of needles. The doctor who performed them told me everything even the risks before the doctor started then i signed the consent form then all done afterwards the care i recived was fantastic to a nurse helping me to the loo as i could'nt walk far and having a cup of tea as i was white as a sheet as i felt faint. then they looked at my injection sites as they were bleeding then i was allowed home after 1/2 an hour i was really happy. Thankyou everyone on that day

What could be improved

For me to have the injections sooner than 6months wait
