I was admitted to Bedford a & e recently, the ambulance crew are always understanding and treat you with respect.
I suffer from severe depression and bpd and had attempted to end my life. After waiting numerous hours to be seen, once again I was treated as though I was invisible. Was taken to a ward in AAU and had fluids for 24hours. I felt very ignored and just because I had no physical injuries was more or less left I was at my lowest and not one person came to sit and comfort me. In my opinion it was a disgrace. I had to ask numerous times for my usual medication which they knew nothing about and to talk to someone
In the crisis team I finally spoke to a very nice doctor before I was discharged.
The porters and the food team were great, shame about the lack of healthy food though.
I never want to go to Bedford hospital again.
