I had to go to Primary care after I couldn't get a GP appointment or help from pharmacy or 111 services . The nurse did not help me because my GP surgery was still open, as she would lose her job. The nurse asked me to show her my pad and she said there was not enough blood to get me medication and I was wearing a pant liner not a thick pad as proof that I was bleeding heavily. My reason for attending the service was to see a Dr but nope, I was told to ring my GP despite explaining everything to her. I was just shocked from the treatment and way of diagnosing patients by looking at the evidence on sanitary towels.
We were seen in the paediatric department of A&E. The young adults section is around the back area of the children department. It was very depressing. Its away from the main area, almost excluded. Its drab and dusty and there is not one thing to do there. The children's part has toys and games and books. The young adults area has an xbox that does not work and posters all over about sexual health and drug abuse. My teenage son commented that this is how adults see teenagers- as drugged sexually active loners. Very sad state really. Teenagers already feel adults do not understand or value them. This was sad to see here also.
A big thank you to all the staff on the ENT ward I was sent there by my gp after being wrongly diagnosed at Ripley hospital two days prior. My problem was a abbsyis in my throat the doctors drained it within 15mins of arriving and i spent the next 18hours on a drip. Amazing people thank you Kingsmill
I think Kings Mill Hospital has had some bad reviews which I thing are unjust My only complaint is that I was diagnosed with my condition and it took 4 months before action was taken. Which was in November last year. I was then caught up in the flu epidemic and bed shortage. I was admitted as emergency in mid March . I am sure if I had been admitted earlier my problem would have not been so severe. When I was eventually admitted and operated on the care was first class, this included Doctors, Nurses and staff including catering. Personally I thing KIngs Mill Hospital do an excellent job.
Great reception staff, polite and discreet. Triage nurse - great demeanour and patient care. X-ray staff - excellent. Very pleased in my first visit for 15 years.
