"No Lessons Learned Yet"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

Still no sign of effective co-ordination between the various professions so that patients are dealt with as a "whole" person rather than everyone addressing their own individual areas. Little attention to the promises made on dignity (hearing aids, dentures etc) and worrying lack of cleanliness with spent materials often left on patient tables. I could go on but the more money that goes in the less things seem to improve.
