"Nursing Staff and GP Appointments "

About: HMP Lindholme

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

The nurse on the wing is genuinely showing concern towards me and asks if I am ok.

Appointments for the GP should be based on each individual patients needs. Things requiring attention should be dealt with swiftly instead of waiting weeks.

Response from Healthcare Assistant, Nottinghamshire NHS Healthcare Trust

Many thanks for your post.

We do prioritise our patients appointments, and base this on patient need. We recognise that our waiting times are longer than we would like, but we assure that that there is significant work happening to reduce future waiting times.

If you have any further queries or would like to discuss your concerns further please request to see the Head of Healthcare.

Thanks again
