"Excellent treatment and a solution that saved al"

About: Freeman Hospital

Anything else?

Over the years I have had to spend a lot of time in hospital to receive IV antibiotics.

This was my first stay in the Freeman Ward 29 I was taught how to administer the IV and Inhaled antibiotics and was able to return home in 3 days although my IV treatment was for 14 days. The tuition for the treatment was thorough and well explained.

I was treated like an adult allowed to self adminster the drugs I take as a matter of course at home. The staff were very efficient and explained what was wrong and how my treatment would work. I was diagnosed quickly and efficiently and received hospital addmission with in a week.

Having experienced substandard hospital treatment in the past this renewed my faith in the NHS
