attended by ambulance with severe stomach pain late at night, seen by doctor and sent home with no pain relief just blood test carried out, went home suffered more, called doctor out next day, by now i had high temp so doctor said if i wasnt better in 3 hrs call ambulance, eventualy called ambulace again, taken to a+e, saw a very rude nurse who told me to stop complaining as it was only constipation?...... the nurse made me feel i was waisting thier resouces and time and as i suffer anxiety i left after she forced me to sit in waiting room despite my pain!.... she said it was 5-6 hr wait for a doctor. went home in pain again, partner phoned hospital and spoke to same nurse who was then rude to him. went to gp next day who sent me to hospital again, after waiting hours in A+E managed to see doctor who admited me for scans, had ct scan after doc managed to persuade ct staff to do it, and found out i had pancreatitis. Hospital at bursting point, not enough beds,staff etc, hospital needs extending to cope, and as for the triage nurse, she needs to retrain and improve her attitude, the cleaners on night shift need to do some work instead of playing on thier phones, however the staff that serve meals etc are friendly and dedicated and the ward staff are too. just hope i dont have to go back to this place.
