I have recently had scans at the hospital for prostate cancer. Last week I had a call from the hospital to say they had been reviewing the results of my latest CT scan and needed to see me urgently. This call was well into the evening, they sent an ambulance to collect me and take me in.
By 1:30 in the morning I was in the hospital having an ECG and blood tests, the consultant then came to see me and explained that when looking at the scan taken to check the position of the prostate cancer they had found evidence of blood clots which would need urgent treatment. They completed their tests, revised the medication I should be taking and then discharged me.
The care and attention I have received is first class, I have no complaints about this at all, it has always been first rate.
If I do have a small observation it is that, on discharge I was left stranded at the hospital. There was no hospital transport to get me back home, consequently it was a few hours before I could be collected by my family and taken home again.
