"Gynaecology care St johns"

About: St John's Hospital / Gynaecology St John's Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

Being discharged in pain with no satisfactory explanation. Have a hysterectomy booked in 9 days time on pain medication, and a bladder in retention. Supposed to cope at home with children etc to care for. There is no joined up communication between different shifts or departments and feel my issues have not been addressed or resolved. Very upset and unhappy with level of care.

Dear Betty26

I am very sorry to read about your experiences whilst in St John's Hospital, which does not sound as though you have received the care that l would have hoped for. l would be happy to look into this for you and my telephone number is 0131 536 3370.

Best wishes
