"A and Europe visit and meddoc"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

Yet again, I have been sent home within a week of visiting the A and E department with a heavy heart. I have been dismissed by the meddoc gp again and told to just keep taking the cocktail of medication for my pain. I was recently admitted to the hospital for suspected gall bladder disease and was seen by at least 5 different doctors, who, could not agree as to the cause of the pain. I was discharged with the assurance of a follow up outpatient procedure only to find out from my gp that the hospital had no intention of carrying out the procedure. I am left in pain and distressed and don't know where to turn.

Response from Medway Maritime Hospital

I am sorry to hear your concerns. The hospital Trust doesn’t manage Medocc, that service is run by our community partners. However, if you’d like to discuss any aspect of your care in relation to the emergency department, please do get in touch.
