"Stoma care"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

The Stoma care nurse wrote incorrect details for ostomy products in letter to GP.

So the wrong products have been ordered by the surgery, this despite it being the same old product as previously used.

Perhaps if they had been less abrupt and know-it-all, they would have saved me hours wasted chasing the right products. Maybe Boots would like to bill them for the wrong products they listed, they might be more careful and make fewer mistakes.
