"Hospital Feedback"

About: Northwick Park Hospital

I was seen by a gynaclogist who was unable to detect my very obvious medical problem, I was refused a scan despite me not being able to walk well due to pelvic pain and yet she couldn't pin point a very obvious medical problem nor did she have an answer, she sent me on my way which general anti biotics dismissing major symptons such as an abdominal mass. She took a swab claiming she would contact me a week later, 2 weeks later I have heard nothing. Nurses took blood from me like I was animal leaving me with 2 bruised arms and blood has sprayed everywhere even into my cup of water - it was nothing to her.. She just kissed her teeth at me. Lastly, to my utter disbelief... I left my room for 5 minutes, I couldn't carry my handbag due to the nurses bruising my arms and i could just about walk so I left it in my allocated room. I found that £50 had been stolen from my wallet as it was in there in the car to the hospital and I realised it was gone when my husband was paying for the car parking. I went back in to complain and the nurse said the head nurse would get back to me in a week and 2 weeks later... nothing! The nurse I spoke to also did mention that it's likely nothing will be done about it, as if she was used to this happening. Absolutely disgusting.
