"Came in through a and e. Was seen ..."

About: Stafford Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Came in through a and e. Was seen pretty quickly but sent home with painkillers that made me vomit as soon as i took them.

What could be improved

I was supposed to be given the name of a person who could help me because i was thinking about suicide but i never got any help or follow up. Feel so alone. Maybe they could read my notes more thoroughly.
