"Worse than poor follow up care"

About: Pilgrim Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

After excellent care from a&e and ward 3b....I now cannot get an appointment to have my wound checked for infection or have the stitches and clips removed within the consultants timescales as there are no available appointment! ! ! ! What a big let down after such perfect care.
