"Nurses and doctors in A&E ..."

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

(as the patient),

What I liked

Nurses and doctors in A&E excellent and very caring.

What could be improved

Post A&E communication between departments and with patients.

Anything else?

8 weeks after A&E, during which time I have been in some considerable discomfort, I am still awaiting referral to specialist. The first attempt was aborted because they were unable to transfer my Xrays from one department to another. When I attempted to find out the progress of my referral, receptionist was very condescending.
