I had seen my GP earlier that day and he rang the SAU for an appointment for me. It was scheduled for 1. 30. I saw a consultant who diagnosed Appendicitis and said I needed to be admitted and they would operate the next day. Unfortunately, no fault of anyone's but there was no bed available until after 6. 00 pm. I eventually went to Woodland Ward.
The nursing team and my consultant were absolutely brilliant. They could not have done more for me. Truly fabulous .... I had CT Scan, X-rays of my stomach and chest. The diagnosis from the results was diverticulitis. I stayed in from last Wednesday to Friday evening. First class, incredibly professional service by everyone.
Thank you all for your help. I so appreciate it.
