Leicester General Hospital

Gwendolen Rd, Leicester LE5 4PW, UK – 0300 303 1573

A fantastic local institution that has ably served the local community for over a century. It's worth waiting here if it means you see world class practitioners who are not going to fleece you in the process.

I have just come out of Leicester General after treatment for a bladder tumour and was very impressed by my treatment, both surgery and nursing. However when it came to leaving it would probably have been easier to escape from Colditz. Why when the nursing is so good and the attention from consultants is brilliant can the discharge procedure be so chaotic? I was told I could leave at 12.45 on Monday and that it would take a few hours to get the procedure in place .I asked for an estimate of time and was told by a ward sister that the discharge letter would be with me by 4.00pm.Why 31/4 hours? I was asked by the sister if I needed medication to take home and by another nurse on a separate occassion. My problem was that I live in North Linolnshire and I had arranged for a friend to fetch me and I needed a rough time to save me having to wait about 7 hours as the trip for him takes about 3 hours so I could ring him in the hope my discharge would coincide with his arrival. I asked every now and then how things were going and was told that a nurse was keeping her eye on it as the original sister had left . At 4pm still no sign of the letter and my friend had arrived in the car park so I asked again and was told that the letter was being dealt with in a way that suggested not to keep bothering staff. At 4.20pm I went back to the ward desk and spoke to a different sister/charge nurse and asked what I had to do to get out. She asked me if I needed medication to take home and I said no I didn't to which she replied that in that case I could leave and that they would send the letter by post and said that this was the normal case. I have to say that she was very apologetic ,particularly when I said that I had been asked at least twice before about medication. Why can't this procedure be put into ward training and standardised or some system be in place to speed things up as it rather spoils what had been a very good experience up until then?

My daughter was admitted to ward 11 on 23/09/2017 for a day case removal of tonsils, everything went very well I was VERY pleased with the whole day and care of my child, the ward seemed very clean and tidy with VERY helpful staff. She has been home nearly 24 hours and making a GREAT recovery, I think ALL the staff need a pat on the back and a BIG thank you from me and my daughter.

Had my second baby at LRI. The birth centre was clean, the staff were polite and kept me calm and I was able to leave the hospital on the same day
