"Linet ward"

About: Weston General Hospital

My Dad frequented GWH as an in patient as a poorly diabetic.

He always went onto Linet ward which was filthy. I have reported this many times and on our last visit my daughter photographed evidence as yet again we we were so concerned.

He ended up picking up more infections than he entered with. Neuro virus and pneumonia which ended up taking his life.

I am appauled with his treatment. Being a very quiet frail man, put in a side ward, he was simple left and forgotten!

My complaints ended with " appology" but nothing ever improved.

We can not complain any more as he is longer here!

Response from Weston General Hospital

Hi there,

Apologies but I think you may have posted here in error- we don't have a Linet Ward... Did you intend to post on Great Western Hospitals ( who do have a Linnet Ward) ? Please don't hesitate to contact our PALS ( Patient Advice and Liaison Service) on 01934 647216 if we can be of any further assistance.
