"No communication & No care taken on a patients..."

About: King's Mill Hospital

I have to mention a few points and please do not read as coming from a patient that does not respect what everyone does at every NHS Hospital. I feel that some consultants fail to explain when they discharge a patient what is meant by `that`s all we can do for you` even though the patient has undergone an operation that has changed a person blood circulation route meaning one main artery in my case to one leg is now blocked off forever ` yet ` after seeing the consultant I was left with the feeling that I am now fully cured and have returned to 100% able bodied which would be an impossibility,even a open wound that I have had since an operation nearly 2 years ago was described as healing nicely. Even the nurse failed to listen to my plea that I was allergic to some types of dressings and simply stuck on a plaster of her choice, which I had to remove after leaving the room and travel home with no dressing on my wound. I do not know if the consultants have to unload patients for that NHS hospital to save money but as a person who has paid into the system thousands of pounds then I expect the best advice and medical practice, other wise why was a charged for it in my working life. Do not see this as a complaint, but this sort of service has left a lot to be desired to how much is really understood by consultant to patient.
