Consultant ward rounds
8am 14th August
A flock of Doctors swoop into the ward and bounce from bed to bed with the senior Doctor asking the more junior doctors for thier opinions and quizzing the patient.
By listening to thier garbling I managed to find out that:
- I need surgery.
- Worthing will not be able to operate on me before Thursday and most likely after that depending on what other emergencies arrive.
- Worthing want me to go to my local Hospital (Royal Berkshire) because it’s more convenient. I cried, I felt like I was merely being shifted off thier lists…to start again on another list…
- Doing the paper work to let me physically leave the hospital takes 5 hours.
