About: West Middlesex University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The childrens diabetic unit was Briliant, supportive and responsive.

What could be improved

Now I am 18 had to transfer to the adult Diabetic Clinic and my experience of West Mid drastically changed. After initial consultation in July 07 I asked about insulin pumps and was told could discuss at next appointment and they needed to see me in 2 months time. NOW 8 months later still waiting for an appointment after the hospital cancelled last two appointments. Receiption unhepful. The hospital could be improved by offering the primary care required by Diabetics as I feel my health and long term controls have been severly affectd by WestMids failures
