"The staff at PRH were excellent"
Posted by Tray788 (as ),
My first visit to Dr Leaver was in November - he said he wanted the treadmill test. I visited again a week later, he asked if I had heard from the hospital - I said no. The letter arrived late November, I then received a phone call offering my appointment at PRH in December. I accepted a letter confirming. At no time I was offered an alternative hospital. The appointment suited me. The staff at PRH were excellent. I was called in on time and the care given was good.
What has intrigued me about this episode is why it needs another level of paperwork/clerks to process a request from a GP for a patient to receive investigative treatment in the local hospitals.
