About: Queen Elizabeth I I Hospital (Welwyn Garden City)

(as the patient),

What I liked

The nurses were kind and attentive.

What could be improved

I was told that I could have been admitted into the hospital and then have a ultrasound the next day or Monday, but they may not have a bed and then I would have to be seen by the surgeon on calls boss who would assess me to see if I needed to be transfered to Lister in Stevenage. I then was told if I went home I would have to wait 3 weeks for an ultrasound. I was in pain but not agony and they painkillers I was given I could have on prescription. I am now at home and still unwell and do not know what to do next. I have been to the doctors 4 times in 2 weeks and hospital three times and I have discharged with 'unspecific abdo pain'.
