"helpng other patients"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

helpng other patients

What could be improved

acsess to the car park from the main road.parking very difficult...waiting to see a doctor.waiting for treatment.waiting for a bed.feedback regarding your condition and explanations and feedback regarding tests being done whilst looking for a diagnosis..more careing attitude towards people in pain or scared pain killers dont help a persons mental state .

Anything else?

i have been a care worker for 22 years and am well aware of difficult patients and under staffing.most of my worries regarding RPH are down to the lack of staff..surgions,doctors,nurses,i can honestly say every time i have had treatment here i have always come out feeling like ive been on a cattle ranch...i have had two stays in rph in the last twelve months the first of which i nearly lost my life becouse of miss diagnoses by several doctors with a condition that was easily diagnosed,,if i hadnt persisted and demanded help i wouldnt be writing this now,,my last visit l was admitted for surgery but didnt get the treatment i was supposed to have and was on a nil my mouth for 21 hours for no reason wot so ever which left me dehydrated nausious and headache this also was down to lack of surgions
