I was admitted to ED following advice from my GP. I waited in A&E for 14 hours. I was seen swiftly by Nurses but then had to wait hours to see a doctor. I think that if a minor injury was open 24 hours it would help ease the pressure for staff in A&E.
I am happy with treatment and care received in 4 south but waiting for my colonoscopy was vexing.I was advised to fast before colonoscopy only for the test to be cancelled.This happened 4 times before I finally received the test. I am happy with careprovided by staff in 4 south but feel that better organization andcommunication is needed for scans and testsoutside the ward. I understand the pressure the NHS is under but it is unfairto fast patient if procedure will not go ahead.
"Better organisation and communication is needed"
