"Given the wrong drugs."

About: Royal Derby Hospital

Anything else?

My wife was given the wrong drugs. Bowl tablets instead of a resolution to bad period pains for poly cystic ovaries. My wife knows the difference between period problems and bowl problems. She been in before for the same thing and was treated for the pain. This time my wife had to suffer in agony and be sent home with Bowl tablets. What a waste of time.
