"Very little"

About: St James's University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Very little

What could be improved

I was called in to see a registrar 1 hour and 30 minutes after my appointment time only to be told I was being discharged, although I was still presenting all of my symptoms. I have been rereferred due to this and am hoping for a more satisfactory outcome. My doctor told me that it is 'like witchcraft, if I tell you that you are ok, you might be ok'

Anything else?

The problem that I was referred with meant that I had to keep leaving the waiting area so that I could use the toilet. This was embarrasing and inconvenient as the toilets were approximately 100yards away. I was also worried that my name would be called and I would not be there.
