"GP is doing more for me "

About: Tameside General Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

I was taken into tameside hospital was kept waiting for 4hours had a heart condition.

I was sent to mauu ward and had my blood pressure taken in the middle I was woken to have an injection in my stomach. They thought I had a blood clot. My doctor sent me for xray in morning they looked at that but later on that day I was sent home by a consultant.

Started a 24 hr urine collection never completed my own GP is doing more for me sending me for echocardiogram which could have been done when I was in hospital.

Response from Lindsay Stewart, Deputy Director of Nursing, Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust

Many thanks for posting these comments; it is difficult to comment on an individual case without more specific details.

However from a clinical perspective, a decision to treat and or discharge is based on the clinical information and how the patient presents on the day.

If you would like this looking into further please can you contact PALS and complaints department in order for us to address your concerns?
