I am absolutely disgusted how I was treated and the standard of care I was given (not given). I recently had surgery for skin cancer. I was lying on the operating table, surgeon asked other nurser to cut a few hairs from the area, and she came wading in and shaved the area!! I was in shock and didn't say anything! Then having had the one removed from my face and then he started on my back.. first injection then started the operation.. with several interuptions from i was told, his students as he is also a teacher in his field, for them to discuss another patient infront of me was just outrageous, and then to leave me bleeding for the nurse to mop up while he stood and had a chat! then for another person to pop their head round the corner for a chat about another patient.. it was like picadilly circus in there. Then i told him i could feel him cutting me and sewing me up he just said nearly over! having then finished I got up.. he'd already left, for the nurse to watch me try and get myself dressed, she then handed me an envelope with instructions and told me not to bend over, stretch, pull, lift anything.. i said you just saw me struggling with my boots.. with a rye smile she just handed me the letter and walked away. Please if you can get referred somewhere else do so! an absolute joke! I am so disgusted with how i was treated i am putting in a formal complaint! I work for the NHS and I know that how i was treated is breaking so many regulations! Still in alot of pain.
