The saga I introduced in my earlier post, No Ageism in the NHS, has actually got worse.

My step-daughter was readmitted to the original hospital by ambulance on Tuesday where she was immediately put on a drip again and isolated. She was prescribed some drugs but was never given them because they said they didn’t have them in stock!!

The next day, in the afternoon she was moved to another hospital’s Assessment Unit, still without having been given the drugs she was prescribed. When we visited she was in a very bad state and it wasn’t until we voiced concerns that they contacted a doctor who wrote another prescription.

We were told that the next day, today – Thursday, there were a series of tests planned to finally find the problem.

Guess what, this afternoon she was told they wouldn’t be doing anything until next week so she might as well go home.

She’s due back in on Monday and I’ll be updating this blog.
