"Anticoagulant Clinic"

About: Kingston Hospital

Anything else?

My cardiologist recommended the Warfarin dose I should be on which is is contrary to that the anticoagulant nurses are suggesting.

I have written to the anticoagulant clinic, left several messages on the phone and they just to ignore me. I have even letft a copy of my letter in my yellow book. The same, they ignore me.

Surely a small telephone call could resolve this, however now there isn't even an answer phone to leave a message.

Result, I am self medicating the dose I think is correct with a very dangerous drug.

This department is a disgrace to the hospital.
