"Dreadful hospital"

About: Worthing Hospital

Anything else?

Had the displeasure of staying here overnight last year, the staff in AMU refused to take my temperature in the middle of the night "because it wasn't time to take it", after persuasion my temperature was found to be 38.8 but this wasn't recorded because it wasn't the right time and I was given no medication to bring the temp down, no fresh water and not even a fan to cool me. The doctors were rude and headstrong, especially a particularly vile haematologist who rather dangerously pretended he knew about a disease he clearly had no knowledge of. This doctor also placed a greater importance on pressuring me to transfer to Worthing Hospital as a patient of theirs than to care for my disease because they had "lots" of patients with my disease. One in six million people get what I have... but they have lots of patients??
