"admitted with suspected gallstones"

About: Musgrove Park Hospital

I have come home from a four night sat on Ward 1 and 2 due to gallstones the poor nurses and health care assistants run around like headless chicken. They were all so friendly and caring! Unfortunately the same couldnt be said for the senior doctors.At one point I felt as though I was having a panic attack after bein spoken down to. When the doctors do their rounds about 8 appear at the bottom of your bed its so intimidating! ! Thankyou so much to all the nurses and health care assistants on ward 1 and 2. You truly are amazing and deserve some recognition! ! As for the majority of doctors you need some people skills!!! Credit goes out to all the nurses and health care assistants xxxxx
