"Elderly mothers care"

About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital

There is a total lack of communication between departments everything has to repeated endlessly . Asking an 83 year old what tablets and what milligrams she is on whilst in A and E after having a stroke is ludicrous! Doctors who don't want to listen to the patients story as they don't deal with that. One doctors was talking to another patient about treatment I looked up to find they thought the patient was my mother when I told them they were like oh ok!!! Biggest problem is total lack of communication between departments
