"It shouldn't even be called a hospital"

About: Castle Hill Hospital

I'm writing on the behalf of all my family. In April my grandad went in to castle hill to have an operation to get an hurnea removed. On the bank holiday, may 5th or 6th. He had no staff looking after him and he was having trouble breathing. On May 6th we thought we was going to loose him. May 7th he died of internal bleeding. The doctors and the nurses should of known about this and should of helped him. They didn't know about it as he had no staff looking after him on the Monday.
