"Un-professional and amateur staff in A+E Again!"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

I had been told my my therapist to attend A+E as i'd taken 15 codeine tablets as it was my birthday, I dont celebrate my birthday as my dad sexually abused me on my birthday from the age of 8 onwards. I didnt want to go to a+e as I'd had experience of their appalling attitude with my husband who is Bipolar. I was told they were taking bloods, waited around for 2 hrs in a cubicle and then overheard amateur and unprofessional nurses referring to other patients in a derogatory manner and then they said "get rid of her in 3" - I was in "3", they then came in and told me blood tests were un-necessary and I could go. I left there feeling worse than when I went in - I also heard the awful nurses discussing the size of one of their boyfriends penis, this hospital would be no loss if it was closed down. Also due to ineffective privacy measures, one could sit and write down the name, address, telephone number and date of birth of every patient that attended, surely this is a data protection issue.
