"Poor communication by staff"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

(as a service user),

Phoned today, the day after my daughter passed away, trying to find out when to collect my daughter’s possessions, the person on the phone couldn’t understand me & kept asking me to repeat, then he put the phone down on me. I phoned back & said do not put the phone down on me again, he said there’s no one in charge to ask & put the phone down on me, I was absolutely disgusted at this behaviour. My daughter has just died & all I need is to be spoken to civilly.
