Review of AE (Worthing),
25th June 2021


Receptionist is incredibly rude and not willing to assist with patient queries. Eg. Simple time frame questions to allow people to inform relatives who are waiting. She is dismissive, condescending and utterly rude.

This Maternity system and the lack of communication, and nobody to care for my wife is totally a shame for this country! It's been more than two weeks now that we have lost our fetus(which we were trying for many years to have) and the appointed Midwife has not contacted my wife, not even a sympathetic I'm sorry for your loss sms is been sent! Never seen a doctor, even after diagnosed(from telephone Midwife) as difficult pregnancy. Almost feeling like I'm in third world country, with no personnel, and no compassion! No actual professional help whatsoever, just a receptionist saying: If you have severe bleeding come to A&E. Meaning , don't bother us, just stay there and wait for your fetus to die! I'm so dissapointed,devastated and angry with the lack of professionalism and compassion! Never will I suggest this place to anyone, don't go there, they only care if your baby is dead, just to fill their records and their protocols!

I am unable to answer the above questions properly as I was not able to be with my elderly mother who was admitted in January from Covid.I also live in Scotland and was her main carer visiting every month before Covid lockdown occurred.. My mother was only in hospital for 24 hours and as far as I am aware the nursing care was excellent but the communication was terrible and I was only able to speak briefly with her just before she died. Unfortunately I was told by a male person in A&E that I was not allowed to speak to her as there was no phone! As there were no beds for her she was in A&E for a long time. When she was moved to emergency floor Zone B I did telephone to speak to her but again was told she was being moved to another ward so this was not possible as they were in the process of moving her. My brother who lives in Copthorne was told he could visit at 4pm as she was very unwell. He then had a phone all to say he could not visit due to Covid being highly infectious. On arrival to Buckingham ward 30 mins later he was telephoned and told he could visit her at 6pm. Unfortunately she was unconscious when he visited and died 5 mins after he arrived. He said the nurses were lovely and were sitting with her which has helped us . I did speak to the patient liaison team as, as you can imagine I was very upset by the poor communication and as a retired palliative care nurse felt the communication should have been better and that the experience phoning A&as was unacceptable. I did speak to the ward manager on both A&E and Buckingham ward who understood my concerns and they were most helpful as were the patient liaison team.. I also had a miscommunication with the Chaplaincy team as I had asked them to see her as her faith was very important to her. Unfortunately the 2nd message I left was not picked up until the following day by which time she had died. I had been told by switchboard that the chaplain on the Sat afternoon was not answering their bleep so a message was left by me on their answer phone. I did get a phone call from one of the chaplains afterwards to apologise. So as you can read it was a journey of poor communication for us and maybe we were just unlucky as I hope this does not happen to anyone else.

The whole team of staff caring for my son at Worthing hospital were amazing and took great care of him, and even myself. They kept us both at ease and comfortable and was always checking in on my son and if he needed anything and that he was comfortable. Your all doing amazing thank you so much for everything you done for us.

I have been attending the West Sussex Breast Care Centre on several occasions since the 1st. of March. On every single occasion I have met with the greatest of kindness, care and understanding and enormous professional attention has been given to me to ensure that I was well aware of the procedures necessary. These comments also apply to the main Worthing Hospital where I had a Covid test and later surgery. Of course one had collywobbles at the thought of surgery but I felt that I was in the safest of many hugely Professional and kindly understanding hands, and I do not think that I could have bettered the service that I received anywhere. I am so pleased to have this opportunity to thank everyone involved in my care, and would be delighted for my comments to be shared amongst the splendid Breast Care Centre and the main Worthing Hospital. A huge thank you to everyone. Caroline Dowse. I

I stayed in overnight after my foot was operated on as I had no one to look after me. I was looked after and treated extremley well by the dedicated, and wonderful nurses, that were on duty. I also have Parkinson's Disease so they made sure that I had all my medication on time. Thank you again.
