"Mis diagnosed in a&e sent home re admitted 24hr..."

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

Anything else?

Terrible care not examined by dr properly sent home with perforated bowel and nearly died. Left for 48 hrs nurses were rude when i discussed moving to private hospital to use my health inurance and free up an nhs bed! Some good nursing care was recieved but will avoid this place at all costs. Looks fantastic staff let it down. Especially a&e staff .
