What I liked
I would not go there again. The doctors at Addenbrooks wrote letters to a GP who does not see me and in doing so they kept up the farce, pretending I receive medical care on the NHS from a NHS-GP. At my last appointment in October 2008 I was told my kidneys would last until ~ January/February 2009 and no medical help what I should do to pretend or to assist me or what diet etc I should eat etc, was offered. The doctors I saw acted like robots and seemed to repeat what they seem to have learned by heart from their medical books. Unfortunately, with a disease like mine I should have met a doctor who likes medicine, is a medical detective and has an ability to combine. No luck there . Addenbrooks was a terrible dissapointment. I complained to Pals, the Managing Director etc, but there was no one interested to listen.
What could be improved
It is always down to the people working in a hospital to make it either good or bad.
Going to Addenbrooks was one of my most traumatic experiences on the NHS.
