We want to ask you:
What if better communication between patient and NHS could prevent needless illness or death?
Warning: Lack of notes can kill!
Every year, thousands of NHS patients suffer needlessly. Doctors are overworked, mistakes are made and billions of pounds are wasted. The question is, why?
If you have ever been a patient, or your loved one has, you may know for yourself the confusion and stress that often occurs:
- You don’t understand what the doctor or consultant is saying
- Your story is not taken seriously
- You find it difficult to recall your diagnosis or treatment, since you have no notes to refer to
- Perhaps, as a result you are sent away with the wrong diagnosis, or you have to make several appointments.
This is critical:
You don’t understand everything that the medical professionals are asking or saying to you; no one seems to have access to your loved one’s medical history and you are worried that you may generalise, delete or distort something critical when telling people what they need to know. All of this wastes precious time in which you or your loved one could be receiving proper treatment.
The problem is down to a breakdown in communication between patient and consultant. And, the problem has been publicly recognised and acknowledged.
Trouble is, all too often the solution has been developed by medical professionals for the ‘benefit’ of patients but NOT by patients themselves and NOT from a patient’s perspective.
