"Perhaps not the worst hospital in Britain but..."

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

Anything else?

Only about 50% of the nursing staff have any conception of what nursing care entails. I cannot describe the food accurately without swearing; suffice to say I would not feed it to a dog! I survived biscuits, toast, small pieces of cheese, an occasional apple and food brought. Having bee given a drug to thin the blood I bled for over 12 hours before the flow was stemmed by a tight bandage. Despite continually asking for help I was ignored.A nurse told my wfie it was only a scratch!
