After a long process of making a complaint to St Thomas's, about my discharge from the Lupus Unit, by a certain doctor who I have never met, and after nearly a year, the Ombudsman have found the doctor and St Thomas's, to have failed me. The ombudsman has upheld part of my complaint,, and put recommendations in progress. I was unable to discuss the matter until after the investigation. I await a reply from St Thomas's. For all of those patients who was discharged and left with no consultant care, should go down the complaints procedure, taking it to the Ombudsman, if all channels have been exhausted. How many more patients have been failed?
