Just to let you know that BBC Midlands today will be showing a piece on Monday evening on my problems with getting admitted to the QE in Birmingham with pneumonia, pleurisy and empyema, inspite of being a patient for 33 years. I will also be talking to radio WM at 7.30 am and radio Coventry and Warwick Between 8.15 and 8.30 am. I seem to have kicked a hornets nest because the hospital, after stating to the journalists that it was a blanket exclusion policy not to admit patients from outside the area, are now coming up with other excuses, eg. we didn't have a bed. Rubbish. I heard my GP arguing with them that I was a longstanding patient whose GP and consultant had made the clinical decision that I needed admittance immediately. The QE flatly refused.
