Review of Podiatric Surgery , written by a patient
28th June 2017
Ian and all staff were great.
Getting home and coping on my own was very difficult.
Having someone to assess would have helped but costs would not allow which I also understand.
Response from Battle House
Thank you for your positive comments comments regarding the staff.
We would like to reassure you that in no way would NHS funding issues affect the care and safety of our patients.
All our surgical patients attend for preoperative assessment prior to surgery. Normally any issues with aftercare are raised at this point and if required we would refer to other appropriate healthcare professionals. All our surgical patients are advised that they must have someone with them after surgery for at least 48hrs. If we feel that appropriate aftercare is not in place the operation would be postponed until care is available.
In this instance, for this patient, we appear not to have identified a concern. Unfortunately without more information we are unable to clarify this fully
