About: East Surrey Hospital

Anything else?

In March my partner was admitted to this hospital. She was transferred to ST. Georges without me knowing. I was informed b the specialist at ST. Georges that she had a brain tumour. I was informed on her progress later. She was then transferred back to this hospital without any one letting me know. ST.Georges informed me when I phoned to see how she was. She spent about a week or two here before being without my knowledge to a nursing home. They did nothing to help her get on her feet again. When she came home she was rushed back into hospital again with a rupture of a blood vessel. once again she was sent back to this hospital without my being informed until I phoned ST. Georges. Since then we both have been messed about by this hospital. She should, be home tomorrow (should have been every day this week)
