"Lack of communication with departments"

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

Anything else?

I am currently under several departments with the hospital example rheumatology, urology and cardiology. Each department needs to talk to each so that the patient is treated as a whole person and not as body parts.. This would stop the clashes of opinions on medications prescribed, so their isn’t a constant change of medication when visiting these several departments specially when there are side effects to these to medications prescribed. .
