"Leaving telephone messages."

About: Warren Hospital

(as the patient),

I got a voice message on Monday to see how I was. This was recorded on Sunday to see how I was feeling. I believe you should be aware that under telecommunication act telephone companies have 4 days to deliver voice messages, text message has to be delivered in 4 hours. Big difference. On receiving the voice message I immediately phoned the hospital, but it rang out, I did this 4 times each time it rang out. So I stopped responding. I understand hospitals get busy, but I think there should be a better follow up method used by hospitals. By the way I am all good.

Dear Volchenok

Thank you for contacting me regarding your feedback. Unfortunately the phone number that you returned the call on is not maned 24hrs per day and therefore it was not answered. We have reviewed our process and will in future make follow up phone-calls from a phone that will be answered at any time of day. Thanks again for contributing to improving our service.
