"It only takes one bad Apple."

About: Bradford Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

Too many bad apples. Firstly I am a genuine patient, not a patient who also works at BRI. Don’t get me wrong there are some lovely hard working people, and thank god we have somewhere we can go in an emergency. But that is were my prise is going to end. Had nothing but metaphorical doors slammed in my face over last few month, would appear this is normal though should you question a Dr. Have had to listen to complete jaw dropping medical nonsense by a senior Dr there, which alone destroyed my confidence in aspects of BRI. When you are treated with great dignity and respect by some nurses and general staff, then you are confronted by the above nonsense, then it is an insult. I feel very sorry for some of the nice people who probably have to take the backlash from such incompetent Dr.s
