"I feel my uncle was discharged too early"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

(as the patient),

Dear reader

Since my uncle was submitted to hospital he was receiving treatment for his health when he was referred back home. In my opinion he was released too early. My point is that because of his problems he was unable to return home but the NHS office staff at the hospital insisted he could return. But I feel that returning him home when the patient is unwell would evoke his problems. We also found that the person who contacted us was arrogant towards us and lacked empathy.
