About: Ipswich Hospital

My mother recently went in to Ipswich Hospital to have some scans for a (still) unknown pain in her stomach. Supposedly was going to take a few days but she was in there for almost a week. Doctors did not communicate and often nurses did not give her the correct medication or missed some off. When she was eventually allowed solid food after almost four days it was the wrong order and awful. She waited three days just to see a consultant who did not introduce himself and only spent two minutes with her. She was moved round different wards constantly as there were higher priority cases. I support the NHS but not Ipswich hospital.
