"Dr needs to read your aim on pt care"

About: Barnsley Hospital

Anything else?

I was recently admitted to the surgical day ward for injections to my hips, the nursing staff on the ward were wonderful very kind and caring informing me of what they were doing at all times as were the staff in theatre, except for the dr he didnt speak to me once while he did the procedure even when I was in some discomfort he I felt like a lump of meat, he was not the consultant I am not sure what position he held as did not speak to me A very upsetting exsperience.
