I was admited recently for an op.
The staff on the esu were absolutly fabulous, my probs started after the insulin infusion finished, i was having hypo's on a daily basis and it took 4 days to see a diabetic nurse (think this is ridiculous!!) so when i was supposed to be moving to exersice my knee each time i did i had a hypo!
That was finally sorted out nearly a week after the op, i was discharged a few days later and they said all e-mails had been sent to distict nurse and physio, however! it got to later the next week and i had heard nothing so rang physio and district nurses and guess what? they had no information on me at all.
It took several calls to Tameside before i finally got my appts, so the staff are great but the cogs go round way too slow for my liking, think they need to get their act together!
