Mrs "ET" had a full hip replacement last Wednesday I took her to the 'local' hospital (16 miles !!) by 07.30 she was first on list at 09.00 all went well and was back in the ward when I visited at 16.00 sitting up pain free etc
She was able to leave on Saturday 14.00 but while all was arranged for discharge when I called for her apologies there is one tablet she needs we have given her 3 to last till Tuesday when I must call to collect the balance Sorry but the Pharmacy closes at 12.00 on a Saturday!! This is not some Cottage Hospital but a big one So excellent service spoilt by the pharmacy!!
BTW home now and doing well
