About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

The care is haphazard and uncoordinated. The medical teams don't pass on the relevant information to each other and the follow up care and communication with the GP appears to be non existent. The care is based on symptom diagnosis and treatment and not looking at what is causing the symptoms. Once the symptom has been treated you are discharged. A fact which caused my readmission some days later with the same cycle of symptomatic treatment and non communication.
