"Care of Father"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

The treatment at this hospital is just disgusting! My father suffered from a stroke at 1am Monday morning and was finally seen by a stroke doctor at 7pm the on monday. He could not move or speak and was left unattended, in pain and was ignored by the staff in A&E. I also find it shocking that none of the doctors knew he had had and AVR in 2005 after being told by myself and my family several times and were about to give him medication which could have stopped the AVR working! In short this hospital is a disgrace.
