"Not a lot!"

About: The Royal Liverpool University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Not a lot!

What could be improved

Communication between medical and nursing staff! Nurses actually doing what they say they will do rather than telling you they will contact a dr to review and not doing so: instead leaving you 4 8hours with no medication or fluids when severely dehydrated and failing to even mention the query in handover to the next shift!

Anything else?

It would be good to be given your medication as prescribed, rather than having to request it 2.5 hours after the time it has been prescribed for: when you have a steroid dependency this is unacceptable!
