"Hospital feedback"

About: Southend Hospital

There is something of a disconnect between the needs of the patient and the industrial-style method of treatment. After a minor operation, I was basically dumped on the street, with no provision for after-care and issues arising from that operation have not been dealt with because it is impossible to communicate with anybody in charge. Telephoning has no effect - just the usual 'oh, we'll get back to you', which they never do. You are just treated like a piece of meat. Essex must be the worst health care authority in the country.
