"Diverticulitis flare ups"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

After being an inpatient, consultant ordered check up. Dr I saw appeared scruffy, didn't introduce themselves. They were offhand, not wanting to answer my questions and seemed totally disinterested in what happens to me. Just told me to eat high fibre diet and take laxatives and pain killers. Was unwilling to offer advice on what to take and when. Total waste of my time attending.

Dear Libran - I am so sorry - this was clearly not a good impression at all and I would like to be able to feed this back to the doctor and team involved. Would you be able to email pals@ulh.nhs.uk and give us a little more detail?

Again I am very sorry but appreciate you telling us this - feedback whether good or bad is very valuable to us.

Jennie
