Spire Yale Hospital
Written by a private patient
29th June 2022
I was a patient at the Spire hospital in Wrexham In Feb 22 and the lead up to my operation was atrocious.
I received three phone calls about the same issue ( obviously they don’t speak to each other)
They kept calling me by the name of Steve and normally I wouldn’t mind but my name is Gary.
They asked me to have blood tests when I had already had them.
However the operation went well BUT the following evening Whilst at home I passed out and was having what I can only describe as a fit.
When I came too my wife phoned up the spire and asked for advice and could I go there ( we only live two minutes away) and she was told NO take him to the general hospital. My wife explained to there Doctor on call their that I had received an operation less than 24 hrs earlier and still he said NO take him to hospital.
I cannot understand why when you pay for a private medical procedure why the NHS should be responsible for the aftercare.
There is so much more I could write but I think you can tell I am fuming about the pre op and post op care.
I would never use this hospital for any private health care again.
I must finish with the surgeon and nurses looked after me in theatre with respect and anything I wanted or needed was not to much trouble.
