"absolutely disgusted"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

Anything else?

My daughter has been on the Disney ward 3 days firstly I can say the nurses was amazing. The doctors how ever was disgusting my daughter was suffering abdominal pain and reffered to surgeons who took blood and said her platelets was low but they could release her to the pediatricians. The pediatricians told us 3 different stories about her blood one minit they said they was fine the next they wasn't and then they was again. She was put on nil by mouth for 9 hours after the surgeons refered her bback. The pediatricians refused to look at her and we waited 2 days for a guesse on why she was in pain. She was then told it could be any of 4 reasons and released her still in agony. I am disgusted how the doctors do not talk to each other the communication was horrific and my daughter is still poorly. I will never let my daughter come to this hospital again.
