"A & E visit"

About: Torbay Hospital

Anything else?

I waited for a long time in much pain. When I asked a nurse for a second pillow to support myself better and therefore reduce the pain she said there were no more available. When I eventually saw a doctor her bedside manner was terrible. She breezed in the cubicle with no word of apology for the wait. She then proceeded to talk to me like I was something the cat had dragged in, almost accusing me of wasting her time. I left immediately and will be taking up the matter with PALS.
