"Extremely disappointed"

About: Newham General Hospital

Had to go to A+ E with bad chemical burns to both legs. Doctor showed little concern and recommended I apply some E45 cream to the burns and take some pain killers both of which I could get at the chemist.. In complete contrast , I attended my local hospital ( Morriston) back in Wales and was admitted straight into the burns department where tests on the wounds were carried out and dressed. There was cellulitis in both legs for which a course of antibiotics was prescribed. I have to return every two days to have the wounds re- dressed. The staff were gobsmacked as to what took place at Newham.
