"inpatient care great due to nursing staff,..."

About: Sandwell General Hospital

What I liked

The nursing staff were lovely and respectful, the food tasted nice but unfortunately I was unable to eat it due to my condition

What could be improved

The surgical consultant spoke to me like i was more of an inconvenience and didnt really speak to me but over me.

Anything else?

Follow up care is the main problem, I have been given some idea about what is wrong with me and i have had an MRI, now I have to sit around and wait to see someone , i have just been told it could be 6 weeks but i have not been given any advice about what i can do in the mean time. I dont know if i should go back to work or whether it would cause me to have further difficulties. But i cannot stay off work for 6 weeks while waiting for Drs to make a decision.
