Molly Meehan - Hospital visit 24th August
I had occasion to visit Orchard Outpatients Surgery Unit as detailed above. From reception, nursing and operating staff I was treated with pleasant, cheerful courtesy and each step undertaken was fully explained to me. Just like to express my gratitude in making what could have been an unpleasant experience so bearable. All were a credit to their profession.
NHS Choices feedback
Sub Standard Treatment
I am appalled in the way my daughter in law was treated on her last scan and again on her 22 week scan today. The last scan they told her she hasn't drink enough fluids to take the measurements, today GRH run 20min late in this department she was rushed, again the trainee told her, her bladder was to full she should empty some, which she did, when she came back she was rushed also told her bladder was still to full they can't see what they needed to see, and told her to come back for her 28 week scan. When she left she didn't get her images when she asked for it they were slapping the bed and said she should get back on the bed and she is keeping the other mothers, so my daughter was very distraught and didn't get back on the bed she left. They also said she can't have another scan untill her 28 week scan.
I think she needs an apology for the way in which she was treated today and for her peace of mind need another scan before her 23 weeks
Treatment of heart attack.
On Monday 17/8/15 I was experiencing severe chest pains, ambulance was called and told I was having a heart attack.
Taken straight to Cheltenham General and on arrival I was informed about the possible dangers of an angioplasty and did I want to proceed with treatment-I did.
I want to commend all medical staff, nurses, nursing assistants and others for the excellent care during my stay on the CCU ward.
Thank you for everything.
