My son attended Redcliffe Hospital Emergency Dept one Sunday morning unable to urinate! Without any tests he was informed he had an enlarged Prostate and sent home to see his GP in the morning He said had a pain level of 8/10. His pain became worse so I suggested he go to a Private Emergency Dept which thankfully he did! ! ! He was scanned etc and operated on where it was found he had a burst abscess in the Sigmoid Colon 7 inches of bowel was removed and he now has a Colostomy for possibly 6 months. I believe that if he had have waited til the Monday morning we would not have him still. I shall be taking this to the Media etc as it is my opinion that the apparent gross negligence of the doctor at Redcliffe nearly cost my son his life.
