What I liked

Can't think of anything I liked.

What could be improved

I was seen by too many different doctors, one would say one thing and one would say another thing, one would recommend a treatment and another one would recommend another treatment. So most of the time you don’t know what was going on and would get confused. I think lack of communication between doctors and nurses and patients. The thing is I could write a hundred a hundred letters a day for the rest of my life and nothing would change. I have a life threatening illness and I end up in hospital 2-3 times a year, and I dread it, it scares me, and when I am in there I feel very uncomfortable almost like I’m a time waster. I thought hospitals were places to get well, but don’t you just get treated and that’s that. You get treated you don’t get looked after.
