Patient was rushed to hospital two days after carer agency called Dr Watts 3 times in 10 days! He came out twice after refusing once the second time and then finally going to see patient who is 88 years old and disabled. He gave the patient Voltarol again for his knee pain and Cocodamol, also said he might have a UTI and prescribed an antibiotic which was started the following day. Patient had been in bed for 5 days. The doctor on call who came to see the patient in his home the following day immediately phoned for an ambulance!! Patient had a blood clot with a history of DVT, had a severe UTI, fluid in his lungs, (pneumonia). As of tomorrow he will have been in hospital for 3 weeks with little progress as he has atrial fibrillation which the doctors have been unable to control with medication. This doctor was not monitoring this patient properly and certainly should not have told him that it was arthritis pain that he was suffering from in his knee!!!
Dr Watts is an exceptional GP who always listens to my problems and I get the impression that he really cares about my health. When I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer he gave me important advice on the care route I should consider,and he was proved right as I was cured without any major side effects.
