"Excellent communication and considerate ..."

About: Warrington Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Excellent communication and considerate care of my feelings. Even when I couldn't be kept up to date with what was happening to me I was constantly attended and made aware of everything when I was capable of processing the information

What could be improved

Speeding up time taken to get a VQ scan - would have meant I would not have had to wait in hospital over the weekend for the scan to be manned. I believe this scanner is only used Mon - Fri 9-5, shamw as that's not the hours pg women get sick, and I was admitted 1pm Friday and couldn't get a scan til 3:30 Mon.

Anything else?

Excellent, Superb - care from the team of doctors, consultants and midwives looking after me. Cannot fault them at all. Think I was lucky though as there were a few who crossed my path who struggled to pass a civil word with me for moaning about what shifts they had etc, but on the whole the team seeing me were fantastic. Thanks for my care.
